Calendar of FC Barcelona

The signing of Sergiño Dest by the FC Barcelona has meant the turn of the illusion of face to one of the positions in which the team, without mattering who occupied the place neither who was the on duty technician,has suffered more in the last years. His youth and the destellos of quality and commitment that has showed in the opportunities that has had from his arrival to Spain confirm that the boy has arrived to go back to do big the Barcelona right lane.

The position of right side has been occupied by illustrate players in the last two decades and, although recently it has caused more headaches that joys and goals, is difficult to forget to those who if they surrendered when occupying said square. Curiously, two of the last footballers that surrendered in the right sector of the defence used the same dorsal that today carries Dest: the number 2.

The first is Juliano Belletti, the one who was part of the restructuring that the Barcelona constituted in 2004, when it made several signings to improve his staff. Although had a discreet profile, inside the field offered depth for the attack and presence in defence and therefore the technician of the moment, Frank Rijkaard, awarded him a lot of confidence during his two first seasons in the club.

Belletti Ensured a place in the heart of all the culés thanks to the unexpected goal that annotated in front of the Arsenal in the final of the Champions League 2005-06, with which the Barcelona ensured the title. It was the only that attained to mark in the 103 parties that contested like culé and, although his time of game diminished afterwards of this moment because of the signing of Gianluca Zambrotta, Juliano Belletti will have always an important space in the history of the club.

Dest, under the trail of Alves

The true vara high that has Sergiño Dest in his way by the Barcelona is the one of Dani Alves, the one who is possibly the best right side that has gone through the club and the one who, in his moment, also dressed the emblematic dorsal number 2 that today luce the carrilero American. With a trail of 391 parties contested, 11 goals and 101 assistances, the shadow of Alves has to be something that, further to intimidate to the exjugador of the Ajax, has to inspire it to turn into the best.

And no only turn into the best, but also erase the sour flavour of mouth that left the sides that arrived after Alves, because any could if it want to have a performance that seemed to the of the Brazilian. By the right-handed side happened Aleix Vidal, Nelson Semedo (the one who also carry the dorsal 2) and Sergi Roberto, but any attained to approach to what the now player of Sao Paulo meant for the defence and the attack of the Barcelona. This will be the big task of Sergiño Dest, the one who does not need to equalise to an emblem like Dani Alves to record his name in the history of the club, but if has the task to give back the solidity to the right-handed side of the diagram culé.
