Sergino Dest pledged Barcelona loyalty early: I'll choose Barca over Real Madrid

Sergino Dest's commitment to new club Barcelona has long been known.

The fullback is completing his move from Ajax to Barca today, with the USA international to take the No2 shirt.

And in a previous interview with former Holland star Andy van der Meyde, Dest was asked who he'd prefer to play for in the future: Barca or Real Madrid.

"I think it would be better to play for Barça," was Dest's reply. "Madrid is different, it is more about fighting, more like a warrior. It is like a Feyenoord-Ajax. Feyenoord is the Madrid and Ajax, Barça."

Also asked to choose between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Dest declared his new captain at Barca the better player.
