Borussia Dortmund Teenager Youssoufa Moukoko Becomes Youngest Goalscorer In Bundesliga History, Aged 16 And 28 Days

At the age of 16 years and 28 days, Borussia Dortmund striker Youssoufa Moukoko has become the youngest goalscorer in Bundesliga history. What a moment.

The teenage sensation, who made his first start for the club against Werder Bremen in an impressive display earlier this week, was once again given a place in the starting XI against FC Union Berlin on Friday night.

And in the 59th minute of the club's clash at The Stadion An der Alten Försterei, another talented youngster, Giovanni Reyna, managed to find Moukoko in the final third and well, he did the rest with a fine finish.

What a talent. What a finish. What a moment.



This is only the start of things to come for the youngster. Moukoko is tipped to achieve great things in the future, having signed a mega 10-year Nike deal worth £9 million in 2019, as per BILD.

The contract, one of the most lucrative for a young athlete, is said to have included a £1 million signing on fee and will see him collect the full amount if several clauses are met.

Even at such a young age, it's reported he earns roughly £6,000 a week as a youth player at Dortmund and will likely be in line for a pay rise if he continues his meteoric rise.

Since joining from St Pauli in 2016, he's scored a ridiculous 141 goals in 88 appearances across Under 17 and Under 19 levels.


Remember the name.
