Sergino Dest is all set to start for Barcelona on Saturday.
Barcelona will be playing against Getafe tonight and Ronald Koeman thinks that Dest is good enough to make his Barcelona debut.
With Alba out injured, Koeman feels Dest could possibly take his place tomorrow.
“First of all it was good to have him here for the training sessions,” Koeman said at a press conference on Friday. “We had the time to talk to him about the system of the team but that system is not really different to what he played with Ajax.
“We know he can play on the right side as a right full-back, he can play in the left full-back position. We know Alba is not fit for tomorrow, it’s a possibility that he will start tomorrow.”
“It’s good for his adaptation that he was here and not playing for the national team,” the Dutch manager continued. “That makes it easier for the boy to adapt to all the kind of stuff we have in Barcelona because everything is bigger here than it was in Amsterdam for him.
“It’s good to have him because he’s one of the players who will be the future for this club.”
