Although Moukoko failed to find the net in the win, Terzic was delighted the the youngster's performance.
"It was important that we had someone in a central position making runs and keeping the opponent busy. Of course he can still improve. It would be strange if that wasn't the case considering he's just 16 years old," the BVB coach told reporters after the final whistle. "
"Youssoufa isn't in our squad just because he's 16, but because he's a good player," he continued.
Moukoko has made six senior appearances for Dortmund so far.
