Sergino Dest happy after first weeks with AC Milan: I hope they keep me

Sergino Dest insists joining AC Milan had nothing to do with the club’s new American owners.

The Barcelona fullback is on-loan at Milan for the season.

He said, “I am a very versatile right-footed defender, but I can also play on the left. Full-back is my favorite position, but I also have more offensive characteristics in case I need to play a little further.

“What I can do is give 100% so that Milan will decide to keep me.

“It’s going well, it was all very fast and I didn’t have much time to look around and visit the city. Everyone in the team is very welcoming, it’s not easy to remember all the names, but the coach helps me.”

On moving to Milan as RedBird Capital’s takeover is being completed, the USA international also said: “I am more focused on the sporting aspects. I am happy that there is a US company, but my focus is on football. I focus on that.”
