Youssoufa Moukoko overcame the first hurdle on the way to her Bundesliga debut! Lucien Favre nominated the youngster according to information from Sky in the squad for the top game against Hertha BSC.
Moukoko celebrates his 16th birthday today, Friday, which means he is finally eligible to play in the Bundesliga. However, BVB coach Favre left it open on Friday afternoon at the press conference whether he would nominate the young attacker directly for the upcoming match against Hertha BSC. “It has not yet been decided whether he will come to Berlin. He has fantastic potential. It is fun to train with him,” said the Swiss.
A few hours later, however, the decision has been made. According to information from Sky Moukoko made the leap into the matchday squad – with the right course, the 16-year-old could make his professional debut and become the youngest player in Bundesliga history.
