Barcelona striker Sergio DEST admitted that he did not understand Lionel Messi’s instructions during his debut with the Catalan team last Sunday against Seville. Barcelona tied against Seville last Sunday night in a match that witnessed the young star’s first appearance who came from Ajax Amsterdam. And although the US national team star thinks he has made a good start with his new teammate Lionel Messi, he admitted that there were some problems at the communication level.
Dest recently joined Barcelona in a deal worth 21 million euros and is expected to solve the full-back problems that the Catalans have suffered in recent years. Dest told the Dutch website NOS: “Today I saw everyone and the first meeting was with Messi. Messi does not speak English, and this is a crisis, but his meeting was extraordinary. He added, “He gave me instructions when I entered, and to be honest, I don’t know what he said to me, and I didn’t understand it, but we were smiling, so everything should be fine, right?” Dest refused to move to Bayern Munich despite the European champion’s interest in his services, preferring a dream experience with the Catalan team and playing with Barcelona jersey.
They report it that DEST quickly submitted his credentials with Ajax to catch everyone's attention, which he seeks to repeat with Barcelona on a trip that will be more difficult.
