Sergiño Dest Is the big hope of the FC Barcelona for his right side of face to the next 10 or 12 years. The Dutch with American passport is one of the carrileros with more projection of the world and in the Barça expect that it do what did not do Nélson Semedo and take the witness of Dani Alves. Has conditions for this, as it has left clear Gregg Berhalter, seleccionador of United States, that knows him very well.

The North American technician was key so that the player decided to dress the colours of United States and no of the Holland of Ronald Koeman, that tried to convince him until the last day. The míster spoke for the newspaper 'Sport' of his pupilo, to the that saw very well in his debut like Barcelona. "Have trained only once, go in in the party at the end, in a moment so taut, with all so equalised, in front of a so complicated rival, was all a challenge. It did it fantastic lidiando with all this and think that could show some of the qualities that has", explained.

Precisely of his virtues spoke the American, that elogió especially his skill with the balloon. "A lot of trainers prefer to have lateral that are very good attacking, that when they arrive to background line have this capacity to give the last pass and be decisive. I think that Sergiño is an example, is very good ofensivamente, is very good in the combination, with the balloon and has dribbling. It is able to go out from backwards with possession with few spaces, something that does a lot the Barça. Besides, also it is very good in three chambers of field", commented.

On the other hand, Berhalter also referred to his defects, and is that with 19 years still has to pulir several appearances of his game."For me still it has to improve in his ending, has to follow working to give a jump in the section goleador. Something that also can improve is the defensive positioning. But it does not concern me because it will adapt and it goes to work hard to prosper in these appearances. I do not doubt it", it said.

Dest, mature and professional in spite of his age

Besides, it recognised that in spite of his age is very professional and has a very positive personality for the changing room and for the game of the team on the field. "It is very mature and calm. It is 19 years old, but it is a very mature person with regard to his mentality. It is very professional and is very centred in the football. To measure that go integrating inside the team his personality will go going out more. It is a player that infects his form to be, that wants to combine and that it wants to feel connected with the rest of players in the field", affirmed.

Also it pronounced the seleccionador of United States on the comparison between Alves and Dest and cleared that it does not finish him to convince. "I think that it is beautiful to have to a player in which you fix you and a model to the that follow, but the footballers in this top level have to define personally, not trying imitate or occupy the gap of anybody. Define his position, his legacy, do his own way. I think that it does not have to commit the error to compare him with Dani Alves, but it has to plough his own gap inside the club", aimed.

Finally, it compared the process of adaptation of Koeman when it arrived to the Barça with which goes to have to happen Sergiño. For the American technician, the experience of the of Zaandam and his confidence in the side will help to that adapt before. "I think that Koeman went through something resembled Sergiño when it was player and went out of Holland to play in the Barça. It made history there and it understands very very how it works the club. This and that trusts a lot in him will help to that Sergiño adapt . When a trainer trusts so much in a player this helps a lot in his security and in his growth", concluded.
