Jordi Alba spoke about how he thinks Sergino Dest is a perfect fit for Barcelona after the 20-year-old scored his first goal for the club in Tuesday’s Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev.

Dest opened the scoring at the start of the second half with a well-taken goal that sent Barca on their way to a comfortable victory in Ukraine.

Indeed the goal was the highlight of a strong performance by Dest on his return to the team, and Alba thinks the new signing from Ajax has a big future ahead of him at the Camp Nou.

“Dest comes with a lot of desire. Unfortunately with Sergi’s injury he will surely have more opportunities. He has a great future and fits perfectly with the characteristics that a full-back at Barça should have. I think he has a high level. We are happy for all the players. they haven’t played much until today and they played a great game.”

Dest was back in the starting XI after Sergi Roberto was ruled out for two months. The 20-year-old can now expect plenty more game time and has the perfect opportunity to nail down the right-back slot with Roberto sidelined.
