Sergino Dest Turned Up At Lionel Messi's Farewell Presser Wearing A Basketball Jersey

Fans online have brutally slammed Sergino Dest for turning up at Lionel Messi's farewell press conference wearing a basketball jersey.


Messi addressed his shock Barcelona exit at a press conference on Sunday.

Family, his former teammates and media were in attendance for the six-time Ballon d'Or winner's emotional speech.

Most people inside the Camp Nou were dressed smartly other than Dest, who bizarrely wore a basketball kit.

The US international stuck out like a sore thumb amongst his club colleagues as Messi broke down in tears as he explained his Barca departure.

The 20-year-old was ruthlessly mocked on social media for his choice of outfit.

Speaking at his presser, the 34-year-old was convinced that he was going to remain at Barca.

But the club's dire financial situation sees the legendary forward leave Spain after 21 sensational years.

"My family and I were convinced that we were going to stay here at home, that's what we all wanted more than anything," he said.

"We've made this our home and we thought we would be staying in Barcelona.

"The time I've had here has been amazing but today I have to say goodbye to all of this. I've been here so many years, my entire life since I was 13."
