On October 1, 2020, Ajax and FC Barcelona reached an agreement for the transfer of Sergiño Dest. With 19 years, then, and an excellent projection for the future, the right-back lands in Barcelona after consolidating himself in the Dutch team during the 2019/20 season.
He made his debut with the Ajax first team on July 27, 2019, in the final of the Dutch Super Cup, and finished the season with 35 games and 27 starts. An end to a stage full of evolution since he arrived in 2012, at the age of 12, from his hometown team, Almere City.
Sergiño Dest’s first stage in the Barça ranks has been versatility. The American player has played a leading role from various positions, acting both as a left and right back, as a lane in a three-center defense, or as a winger on both wings. His performance in all positions has always been solvent.
Dest, born in the Netherlands but with North American nationality, defends the jersey of the American senior team. Previously, he was already crowned in the Concacaf Under-20 championship. His first title with the senior team came with the achievement of the first edition of the CONCACAF Nations League, in which Dest was the protagonist.
