Barcelona New Signing Sergino Dest Humiliated During Unveiling

Sergino Dest became Barcelona's latest signing this week, joining from Ajax for £23.5m and replacing Wolves-bound Nelson Semedo, but he didn't get off to the smoothest start.

The American right-back suffered a rather embarrassing unveiling after being put under the spotlight at the Nou Camp.

Ronald Koeman’s latest addition didn’t get off to the smoothest start after being thrust in front of the cameras to perform some skills and give fans a taste of what’s to come.

However, he struggled to show any real flair initially, even failing to do some basic keepie uppies at one stage.

The USA international did manage to salvage some pride though with an incredible flick manoeuvre as he left the pitch.

Dest revealed he would be trying to follow in the footsteps of ex-Barca right-back Dani Alves, who was a member of the club during their most successful spell a few years ago.

The 19-year-old also paid homage to club captain Lionel Messi, who he insisted he would do his best to help on the pitch.
