A new rule from the German Football League will make it possible for Yaoundé born 15-year-old Borussia Dortmund forward Youssoufa Moukoko
to be eligible to play for their first team.
Moukoko is considered by many as the next big thing in Cameroon football, though he is leaning more towards the German national team. He could make his senior debut for Dortmund in November this year.
The native of Yaoundé has been breaking records and creating new ones with his free goal scoring records in the youth categories of German football.
Youssoufa has scored over 100 goals for Dortmund’s U-17s and U-19s, including 34 goals in 20 league games for the U-19’s this season.
The German Football League has amended their rules on the minimum age a player requires to make his senior debut. The new rules will permit Moukoko to make his debut for the Black and Yellows in November this year.
Dortmund’s Academy Director Lars Ricken feels this will be an opportunity to help in the progress of upcoming stars.
“We are very pleased with this decision,” Ricken told Kicker.
“This could help the clubs but also the young players in their development. A majority of clubs want to give outstanding talents, on very rare occasions, to take the next step in their development,” Ricken added.
Under the old rules, Youssoufa Moukoko would only have been able to play elite football for Dortmund in August 2021, when he would have turned 17.
