Dest 'followed his heart' to Barça

In an interview with LaLiga, the young American describes his feelings after his first few months at the club

In an interview with LaLiga, Sergiño Dest has spoken about his first few months at the club. Here’s a selection of some of the finest quotes: 

Love for Barça

“Barcelona was my dream club. I always wanted to play for the club and I was given the opportunity to join.... I followed my heart to Barcelona. It’s the right place for me.”

“It was a bit strange because I never thought it could all happen so quickly.”

First months

“It was a big step forward. It’s not only on the pitch that I’m developing. I don’t feel too much pressure. I have yet to see the Camp Nou full, but I’m looking forward to seeing it. I’m very proud to be the first American to play here.”

Dest Athletic


“I went out onto the field and I think I did pretty well in my first 15 minutes I played. It’s a fantastic league with great teams.”

Personal feelings

“For me, it’s important to get my confidence back because I feel a little bit unconfident right now. That’s the most important thing for me right now: get the confidence back and play like I used to play and then I think I have a lot of potential.”

The team

“We have a very tough schedule, but we’re playing as a team and growing together. We have a lot of goals to aim for.”

“I can just talk with Ronald Koeman. He gives me tips and advice. He’s able to clearly explain things to me in my native tongue, he’s really helped me a lot.”

“When I was playing in the Ajax youth academy I was always watching Barcelona on TV and now I get to call these players teammates.”

Messi is the best player in the world, he’s world-class. I already knew how good he was, but to see it with your own eyes is always better.”
