Sergiño Dest Made His First Debut After Jordi Alba’s Injury

Sergiño Dest made his debut in a Barcelona shit, but he did it on the opposite side of the pitch that he was signed to cover for. Jordi Alba’s injury prompted the introduction of the American.

It was the 75th minute. Jordi Alba fell to the ground and Sergiño Dest pulled on his Barcelona shirt. That was the moment that the American wing-back made his debut for the Azulgrana.

Jordi Alba was injured and Junior Firpo had already had issues, Sergiño Dest found himself on the left-hand side, the opposite position to the one he was signed to the play in.

Dest has barely been at Barcelona a few days, but those days were enough to earn the trust of Koeman who throw him on after the injury problems in his squad.

The wing-back, with this appearance, became the first US-born footballer to play for Barcelona.
