The coach says it’s the American’s first season at Barca and it’s natural for the 20-year-old to have his problems.
He hasn’t decided whether Dest starts against Elche as he’s just recovered from a thigh injury.
“Dest has played a lot of games, it’s his first season here, and he’s very young. He looks like he’s recovered, but we have to decide whether he plays as a starter or not,” Ronald Koeman said on Sergino Dest’s recovery in Saturday’s press conference, as quoted by Diario Sport.
The American has made the squad after missing 2 out of the last 3 games due to a thigh discomfort.
The 20-year-old has been involved in 2 goals in 21 matches so far this season.
Barca face Elche away on Sunday, January 24. Kick-off is at 16:15 CET.
