According to the "World Sports" report, the US national team coach Belhart talked about his views on Durst. He said that Durst is very capable and he is ready to integrate into Barcelona.
Belhart said he knows Deste very well. Less than a year after Deste made his debut on behalf of the US national team, he joined Barcelona and became the new right-back of Barcelona. Belhart said he was one of the people who persuaded Durst to reject the Dutch national team led by Koeman and join the American team.
Belhart often talks to Durst, he also trains Durst and watched his games many times. He was not surprised by Durst's excellent performance against Sevilla, even though Durst played at left back. "I watched the live broadcast and I think it was a difficult and interesting moment for him. He was replaced at the end of the game and I think he did well. We trained him to play left-back and we think he can. Give a good performance because he can cut inside and shoot, we believe he can play left back."
Belhart said: "Even if there are less than 20 minutes, fans can see how easy it is for him to cooperate and attack with his teammates." The US coach said that this is one of his advantages, but he has more advantages. . "I think he has a strong ball-handling ability, he can dribble. On offense, he is excellent in every aspect. He is strong and fast, and he is good at one-on-one on defense."
贝尔哈特说：“即使只有不到20分钟的时间，球迷们也可以看到与他的队友合作和进攻很容易。”美国教练说，这是他的优势之一，但他有更多优势。 。 “我认为他有很强的控球能力，可以运球。进攻端，他在各个方面都很出色。他又强又快，并且擅长一对一防守。”
However, the 19-year-old has only played in the top league for one year, and his coach also knows that he still has room for improvement. "He has to improve his sense of position and ability to grab some points. He said without hesitation: "He has a lot of excellent qualities and works hard. I think he will get better and better and I am sure he will become one of Barcelona's greatest players. "
Someone compared him with Alves, but Belhart avoided this question because he believed that Durst had to open his own way and not be in the shadow of anyone. "When you reach the level of playing for Barcelona, then a player must find his own way, and Durst will find his own way, which will be different from other players."
Durst was born in the Netherlands, his mother is Dutch, and his father has dual citizenship of Suriname and the United States. He could have chosen the Dutch team. After Ajax made a breakthrough to ensure his position, he was more likely to choose the Netherlands. But after a long conversation with Belhart, Durst decided to bet on the rising American national team and become one of its key parts.
"I wouldn't say it was a negotiation," the coach said of the conversation during those months. "We want to explain our project vision. Durst will play a role in the team and connect with his past at the same time, because he grew up in this team. For him, this is an opportunity to leapfrog. For us, we can build a team that has an important influence on the world with his help." He replied.
Finally, in October last year, after Durst played a friendly match under the guidance of Belhart, Durst made his final decision public. A month later, on November 19th, he made his debut in an official game against Cuba in the Cayman Islands. He finished the game calmly, just like he did against Sevilla. This allowed Belhart to deepen his impression of Durst. "I was surprised by his calmness. He likes music very much, but besides that, he is still developing his personality due to his age, and I am shocked by his calmness." Belhart said.
