LIVE MN – Dest: “Nice to be here, I hope to do as well as Seedorf. Favorite role? Fullback” friends, welcome to Milanello where soon there will be a press conference to present the Sergino Dest. The American full-back, who has already played in two parts of the match against Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb, arrived on the last day of the summer transfer market on loan with the right to redeem from Barcelona. Stay with us so you don’t miss all his sayings!!!

Like your father, Waldo Juliet and Seedorf was also born in Suriname. Was your arrival in Milan destiny?

“It’s the kind of fate that got me here. I’m a rather conservative guy, and I don’t like talking about my family. It’s an honor to be here, and I hope to perform as well at Milan as Seedorf did.”

What can this experience in Italy offer you? Also from a tactical point of view…

“I’m a versatile defender, I can play left and right. My favorite position is full-back, but if I need to, I can play more up front.”

Why should Milan redeem you in June?

“I will give 100% and show that at the end of the season Milan can decide to keep me. The only thing I can do now is give my best.”

You are American and the property of AC Milan is American…

“I’m more focused on football. I’m glad the ownership is American, but it didn’t affect my choice. I’m still focused only on the pitch.”

How is the process of adapting to Milan and Italy going?

“Everything is going well. We play every three days, so I did not have time to look around and visit the city. Everyone in the team is very welcome, it is not easy to remember all the names, but the coach helps me.”

Have you heard of Serginho?

“I know him, and I know he has done great things for Milan. I focus on myself and my development. I have to do my best for Milan.”

What are you working on the most? How do you see the Italian League?

“It’s a different league, and here I can become a more complete player. I have to focus on improving my defensive skills. Changing teams and leagues is an excellent opportunity to grow.”

Do you feel ready for the Milan match? The fullback often plays on the field as well…

“I am happy to be here. Pioli’s game is very good, he can allow me to develop my game in the best possible way. This season can be an opportunity for me to help the team, developing both my offensive and defensive qualities.”

Did you bond with any of your teammates in particular in these early days at Milan?

“I arrived recently. Everyone helps me, but I want to integrate into the whole group without being associated with anyone specifically.”

What is the difference between AC Milan, Barcelona and Ajax? What has surprised you the most in the world of the Rossoneri so far?

“Ajax and Barcelona have a similar match, which depends on possession of the ball. In Milan there is a faster match to reach the goal as quickly as possible. To make a perfect comparison, however, I prefer to wait until the end of this season.”

Did you like any player from Milan’s past? Who impressed you more than your new buddies?

“Milan has a great past. There are many great players like Ronaldinho and Maldini. Leao is a great player. The important thing is the team, not the individual. Team play leads to victories.”

Is there everything here to grow more?

“Here I can improve a lot. Now it’s my turn to improve myself as much as possible.”
