Sergiño Dest started the season as a player of Ajax, but then faced a luxury problem: FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich wanted to take over him. Eventually he chose a transfer to his dream club in Catalonia.
Dest listened to his feelings, he tells to the official channels of La Liga. “Bayern Munich could have been. And it was not an easy choice: Barcelona and Bayern are both great clubs. But I followed my heart. I felt Barcelona was the best place for me. Thats why Im here now.”
When he was a growing football fan in Almere, Dest followed Barcelona closely. “When I played in Ajaxs youth, I always watched these players. And now its my teammates… “, he says. “It was a very special feeling to play for this club. Im honored to be the first American to make the first team here.”
Dest has so far played 21 official matches on behalf of Barça. The wing defender received regular compliments at the beginning of the season, but Mundo Deportivo recently devoted a lot to his shortcomings.
