Berlin – Young prodigy Yusef Mukoko may become the youngest player for the first time in Bundesliga history this weekend, as Borussia Dortmund hints that the German goal-scoring star may make his debut a day after his 16th birthday..

If he played for Hertha Berlin on Saturday evening, Moukoko would set a new record in the German Bundesliga after already sending goal records in German youth soccer.

“I read what the media writes, but I do not pressure myself,” Mukoko told Dortmund in a rare interview during which the club hinted that he might appear in Berlin. .

Even if it’s only his league debut in the following weeks, the confident teen is « not anxious – I know I’ll be making his debut sometime ».

Nuri Shaheen, whose record is being threatened by Mukoko, wants to see the teen make his debut in the German Bundesliga, because « Under 19 is too easy for him ».

Shaheen, now 32, was 16 years 335 days old when he made his debut in Dortmund in 2005 giving Moukoko ample time to break the record.

Moukoko could also make his Champions League debut this fall to break the record for Celestine Babayaro, who was 16 years and 87 days old when he played for Anderlecht in the 1994/95 group stage. .

Moukoko has already trained with Dortmund’s first team on the back of his goalscoring achievements for the youth team.

Despite facing opponents often for four years, the 15-year-old is the captain of the Dortmund Under-19 team and has scored 13 goals in just four matches so far this season.. .

His stats are part of an incredible 47 goals total with 10 assists in just 25 appearances for Dortmund U19s over two seasons.. .

Dortmund is doing its best to protect the young Cameroonian from the uproar – all interview requests have been rejected – but his name is already known at the German soccer summit.

Germany coach Joachim Loew commented, « Yusef Mukoko has a talent that you don’t come across often. ».

He was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon, and moved to Hamburg, his father’s hometown, in 2014 where he started playing for the young Saint Pauli team.. .

In 2016, he transferred to the Dortmund Youth Academy, where he began breaking records in scoring goals, raising unfounded doubts about his age..

When he was 13 years old at the start of 2017/18, he scored 40 goals in 28 appearances for Dortmund Under-17s including the winning goal in the final against Bayern Munich. .

Topped that with 50 goals in 28 games in 2018/19, including 46 league goals to set a new youth record at the U-17 level. .

Last season, he moved to Dortmund U19 just before his 15th birthday and dismissed doubts about his ability to top level with six goals in his stunning debut in the 9-2 win over Wuppertal. .

He finished the 2019/20 season with 38 goals in 28 matches, and the talk soon began about his debut in the Bundesliga.

Optimistically, said Gotti Chatzialexio, Director of Sport at the German Football Federation: “We will all do well to witness Yusef’s development in a relaxed manner with a little patience.. .

However, the youngster, who has already played for Germany’s U-20 national team, is already showing a maturity beyond his years.

Last month, Mukoko scored a hat-trick in Dortmund’s U-19 victory over Schalke 04, but his impressive performance was overshadowed by racial abuse from the team’s fans in Gelsenkirchen.. .

Schalke apologized to Dortmund and Mukoko, who responded with a knee injury after scoring in his next match to join the « Black Lives Matter » protest.
