Borussia Dortmund looks to have discovered another superstar of the future in Youssoufa Moukoko.
The Cameroon-born 12-year-old has so impressed bosses at the Bundesliga outfit that he was quickly promoted from their Under-15s side — where he scored 33 goals in just 21 appearances — to the Under-17s.
The youngster took little time in repaying the club’s faith as he bagged a brace in a 3-0 victory over rivals SG Unterrath.
Some, however, have questioned whether Moukoko is really such a tender age. His father Joseph is not having any of it, saying: ‘The boy can’t be older because his mum, Marie, is only 28.’
