Sergino Dest participated in his first ever Clasico against Real Madrid on Saturday afternoon, but he left the pitch frustrated after Barcelona’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of Los Blancos. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid had chances to grab the victory, but while the home side lacked the clinical touch, Los Blancos managed to net three goals and grab all three points at the Camp Nou.
“It was a really tough match,” Dest said. “We had chances, they had chances, and it’s just too bad that we lost. “It’s my first El Clasico and I’m just pi**ed that we lost. “They were maybe a little bit sharper in the chances. They finished them and we didn’t. “We have another game on Wednesday against Juventus [in the Champions League] and we have to win that one and get the team spirit back.”
Ronald Koeman placed Dest in his natural position at right-back and the Dutchman put together a decent performance, both defensively and in attack. Asked where he prefers to play, he stressed that he can feature wherever he is needed.”I feel a little more comfortable on the right, but if I have to play on the left, that’s no problem for me,” Dest stated.
