I kept telling everyone to relax...

This may come as a surprise to some, but Ajax right back Sergiño Dest will continue sailing under the USMNT flag.

i am (obviously) hugely surprised. happy to say i got this totally wrong. now the question is... can we somehow force ajax to play him on the left. Anyone know Jeff Gillooly's number?

Greg Seltzer said...

There's no way he supplants Tagliafico, but perhaps when he needs a rest or is out for some reason.

DaMa said...

For sure. Barring a WWE-style cueing up of Jeff Gilooly's music, not happening.

Greg. what was your expectation regarding his decision?

Greg Seltzer said...

I was about 70/30 figuring he'd stick with us.

DaMa said...

I wonder what the deciding factor was. Any insights? Player relationships? Path to minutes? Gratitude for investment?

Very, very happy to have been wrong about this.

@DaMa he said it was his relationship with the youth program who believed in his talent and gave him the opportunity, mainly.
