BARCELONA

Sergiño Dest goes 'around the world' during training

The Barcelona full-back may have travelled between the Netherlands, the USA and Spain, but he's now impressing teammates with his skill-show, much like Dani Alves did.

Ronald Koeman, FC Barcelona’s coach, has a big ‘headache’ due to the injuries on defense this past couple of weeks. Sergi Roberto and Gerard Pique are out for months and the new signing this summer, Sergiño Dest, was called to become an important player on defense. Unfortunately he could miss tomorrow’s clash against Osasuna for La Liga.

Getting the best out of Dest

According to Catalunya Radio, the United States international has some muscular discomfort that may force him to sit matchday 11 against Osasuna at the Camp Nou on 29 November. This may force Ronald Koeman to play Frankie de Jong as center-back and include Oscar Mingueza in the lineup.

That said, he was coping pretty well with the ball during training...
