The 19-year-old defender suffered from nerves from his first time at Camp Nou. Although it immediately demonstrated its quality.
The new Barcelona player Sergiño Dest said that “it is an honor to be the first American to wear the shirt and a dream come true” to play for the team, he warned that his role model is Dani Alves and surrendered at the feet of Lionel Messi . But in times of memes and viralizations on social networks, the image of his presentation was his failed attempt to play small games. Although moments later, without the focus of the main camera on its feet, it showed all its quality.
Dest, a 19-year-old right-back, comes to the Catalan team from Ajax in the Netherlands and was one of Ronald Koeman’s requests to strengthen the team.
In his presentation, the youth admitted that “it is fantastic to play with Leo Messi, the best player in the world” and that he will run “everything necessary for him and for the rest of the players”.
This statement was in the same vein as what he said in an interview with the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “I will run out of oxygen in my lungs in every game for Messi.”
The right-back, who will wear the number 2 number (the same one that Dani Alves used), assured that his objective “is to win all possible titles” and that “regardless of what happened recently in Barcelona, this is a club with a trajectory that supports it “.
In addition, he recognized that the presence of Ronald Koeman in Barcelona “was important to come here, but there were many other people who helped him make the decision.”
Dest signed a contract for five seasons with Barcelona and his release clause will be 400 million euros.
