There’s an excellent understanding between Dest and his defensive colleagues

The 2020/21 LaLiga campaign is still in its early stages. But Sergino Dest is already proving to be one of the positive surprises of the season. The right-back arrived at the summer transfer window from Ajax, with Ronald Koeman a great fan of his game. And got off to a good start at Camp Nou. Dest was the first USA international to play for Barcelona in an official match and has been a regular in the squad so far. There was an excellent understanding between Dest and his defensive colleagues. With him becoming increasingly comfortable with the Blaugrana’s style of play and contributing to the attack. Even if he is not Jordi Alba’s level in this sense.

The USA international admitted that he was happy to play wherever Koeman wants

It was the player’s versatility that earned him the chance as he filled in on the left while Jordi Alba was out of injury, before playing in his natural right-back position against Real Madrid. Dest even said he was happy to play wherever Koeman wants. The defender earns the respect of Barcelona fans for his first four appearances and demonstrates why the Catalan club followed him through the transfer window. Dest has also been targeted by some of Europe’s other top clubs. Real Madrid were also associated with him but ruled out his signing due to his alleged lack of physicality. And the fact that he has not yet demonstrated unique ability in aerial duels.

 

The player was signed for purely sporting reasons. Still, Barcelona and the LaLiga are also making the most of what he has with American fans, seeing a boost in social media number from the USA. There is another American at Barcelona as Konrad de la Fuente is waiting in the wings. He played for the first team in the preseason and is waiting to follow Dest in his official debut.
