And all that while playing out of position!
Sergino Dest started in the left-back position against Getafe as neither Junior Firpo nor Jordi Alba was ready for the match. On his full debut for Barcelona, the American looked convincing, especially considering that we were playing against Getafe, a team known for their dirty way of playing.
In fact, Dest had two brilliant moments during the match. First, he nearly assisted Leo Messi.
