Despite being just 14 years old, Youssoufa Moukoko has joined up with BVB's under-19 team after breaking the record for most goals in the under-17 league by netting 50 times in just 28 appearances last season.

And speaking to Reviersport, Moukoko's new coach, Michael Skibbe, says he's in no doubt that the youngster has a professional career in front of him.


"The boy will become a professional one day. I'm absolutely sure of that. Only injuries can stop him," Skibbe said and added:

"He's handling the hype around him in an extremely cool way. He has established himself very well so far and has been able to fit in perfectly with our team."

Moukoko was called up for the German under-16 national team at the age of just 12 and has scored three goals in four appearances for the team.
