Jan Aage Fjortoft says that Youssoufa Moukoko, the youngest player in the Bundesliga, is in the right club with Dortmund (1:10)

16-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko wrote German football history on Saturday and became the youngest player in the Bundesliga when he came on during the Borussia Dortmund game at Hertha Berlin

Moukoko, who was in the 85 Minute in the 4: 3 win against Hertha in Dortmund broke the record of Nuri Sahin, who was 16 years and 11 months old when he played for Dortmund against Wolfsburg in 2005

The German team picked Moukoko for their Bundesliga squad this summer, but knew they had to wait a few months for the player to qualify for the senior squad The teenager has been training with the club’s senior team since August

During his time as a youth in Dortmund, he scored 127 goals and made 26 assists in 84 games

Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, who scored a hat trick against Hertha Berlin, made way for Moukoko to make his debut on Saturday

“He is currently the greatest talent in the world,” said Haaland after the game. “I’m over 20, I’m getting old now!”

“Moukoko is much better than I am his age,” he said on the official Bundesliga website

“The advantage for him is that he was already playing for Dortmund at the age of 15. At his age I was still playing for my hometown Bryne”

At the beginning of this year, Dortmund convinced the German football league to lower the minimum age in the two top divisions of the country from 17 to 16 years

After moving from FC St 2 of the Bundesliga, Pauli recorded a significant increase in the youth of the club in 2016

Moukoko’s development was so rapid that the German federation decided not to select him for youth games until this year, when he made his debut for the German U-20s

“Why should I rule that out now? A lot can change in the next four months,” said German U21 coach Stefan Kuntz last week when he was asked whether Moukoko could be at the U21 European Championship
