From before his arrival to the FC Barcelona, Sergiño Dest already showed a personality of plumb that it would allow him arrive to a big like the Barcelona club and adueñarse of the first place of his position, and up to now has not stopped to show it. Once it dressed the T-shirt of the Barcelona, Dest does not have flaqueado in spite of the difficult moments, showing that it arrived to remain . After the injury of Sergi Roberto has not had rest, but this challenge has assumed it with vigour and has converted it increasingly in a fundamental piece in the diagram of the Barcelona group.

In the commitment in front of the Valladolid was key to apply the system of three head offices and two carrileros. Lenglet Referred to this after the victory: "The change of system has gone out well because Alba and Dest did not have to run so much and do not have us pillado to the contragolpe. It allows us play safer", said. Dest Stood out with promising numbers: three dribblings hit in four attempts and four key passes.

A carrilero with resource of mediapunta

For a conventional side would suppose a problem for playing more advanced for like this give him amplitude to the team; it did not go it for the American that has natural resources of mediapunta, appearance that had not seen in the Barça from the times of Dani Alves.

Dest Is an imaginative side and of very good foot, turned into the player with more dribblings of the Barça after Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembélé, resaltante for a defence that left backwards names like Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho.

Play with the system of three defences does not suppose any problem for Dest, as it can play advanced with the confidence to have the three head offices, two carrileros and the pivote, that would do a total of six players to defend in case to lose the balloon.

A piece of present and future

Gregg Berhalter, seleccionador American, explained to the newspaper Sport in October: "it Is very good with the balloon and in spaces reduced. It is able to go out from backwards with possession with few spaces, something that does a lot the Barça; but it is that it also is very good in three chambers of field". Besides, it signalled pair of appearances to improve: the ending of the played and the defensive positioning. In both cases has margin of improvement. And the 3-5-2 plays him in favour to have the most covered back.

Independently of if Koeman continues or no with the application of this tactical system, Dest has showed to be a structural piece of the Barcelona of the present and of the future, especially with the spare generacional that looks for to implant the technician and the institution culé.
