Xavi makes it clear that he does not trust Dest and Barça are still looking for a first-choice right-back
The coach admits they are looking for a right-back even though he has options in the squad
Barça coach Xavi Hernández commented on the right-back situation and made it clear that they are going to try to strengthen their squad.
"We had it clear that we wanted to sign Azpilicueta and it didn't work out. We'll see how it turns out. We have options and yes, we have spoken to Dest and he knows what his situation is here", making it clear that he is not counting on Dest.
Xavi reiterated that the position is somewhat lacking.
"In the planning, we already had the idea of signing a full-back but it has become complicated. We are looking at options and we will see what possibilities we have. We are not closing the door on anything because there are still days left on the market and there are options".
In spite of everything, he indicated that "we have players in the squad who can play in that position. Sergi Roberto has performed well there and Araujo was good even though it's not his natural position. Koundé, if we need him, could also play in this position, but the ideal thing would be to get someone else as long as he improves the squad. We'll see."
