Good morning, Fear the Wall!
Fire up the hype train! Everyone wish a happy sixteenth birthday to Youssoufa Moukoko, possible one of the most hyped prospects in the history of Borussia Dortmund! Now that Moukoko is 16, he can make appearances with the senior squad. Even though I don’t expect him to be a star right away, he hopefully can at least make the rotation with Erling Haaland.
Moukoko has hasn’t just dominated at every level he’s played. He’s torn apart, humiliated, and downright demolished every competition he’s faced. As a 12-year-old, 40 goals with BVB’s U-17 team. The next year, he scored 50. At 14, he scored 34 goals in 20 games with the BVB U-19s. This year, in only four games with the U-19s, he has 14 goals. He only just turned 16 today; imagine how good he’s going to be in four or five years? It feels like, barring a serious stall in his development, his potential seems virtually limitless.

In theory, Moukoko could feature for BVB as early as tomorrow, when Borussia Dortmund face Hertha Berlin.

What do you expect out of Moukoko this season? Do you think he’s actually developed enough to face senior competition?
