“I spoke with Sergino Dest, I will help him as much as possible. He’s a big player, but we have to show him how things are done at Barcelona and how he has to adapt at the club,” Dani Alves said during his presentation at Camp Nou.
The Brazilian was also asked what he thought of Dest calling him an ‘idol’.
“Well, I’m a special person, there’s no one like me! In Barcelona, it is not enough just to be good. There are great players who came to Barcelona and then left. But here we will help each other, and I think we have great players.”
Alves has also said that he has come to Barca in order to fight for a starting spot, so it remains to be seen how he will combine his competitiveness with his tutoring.
Still, Dani will be unable to play until January, so Sergino has some time to prove himself to the new coach.
