Americans Abroad Player of the Week: Sergino Dest

Sergino Dest’s growing role with Dutch side PSV has continued through the early weeks of the fall schedule and the American now heads into U.S. men’s national team duty off the back of his best overall week at club level this season.

Dest helped PSV to back-to-back victories, logging 169 combined minutes in wins over Lens and PEC Zwolle respectively. The Barcelona loanee earned SBI Americans Abroad Player of the Week honors after registering one assist and delivering solid shifts defensively.

PSV’s 1-0 triumph midweek over Lens helped them remain in the fight for advancement in the UEFA Champions League. Dest started and played 90 minutes at left back, helping limit one of the top attacks from Ligue 1.

After excelling on the European level, Dest returned to Eredivisie play on Sunday and assisted on Malik Tillman’s goal in a 4-0 home triumph. He also won five of his seven duels and drew two fouls, helping PSV move to 12-0-0 in league play and seven points clear of second-place Feyenoord.
