After Youssoufa Moukoko became the youngest player to ever play for Borussia Dortmund, we take a look at the club’s ten youngest debutants.
Youssoufa Moukoko made history against Hertha Berlin in November 2020 by becoming the youngest player to ever appear for Borussia Dortmund and in the Bundesliga.
He will be aiming to follow in the footsteps of some of the club’s other talented youngsters who have enjoyed great success after making their first team debuts at an early age. Here are the ten youngest players to have ever played for the Black and Yellows.
1. Youssoufa Moukoko – 16 years 1 day
Youssoufa Moukoko broke Nuri Sahin’s record of being the youngest player to ever play in the Bundesliga by coming off the bench during Borussia Dortmund’s 5-2 win over Hertha Berlin in November 2020. The highly rated striker also became Borussia Dortmund’s youngest ever debutant just a day after celebrating his 16th birthday.
Moukoko’s long-awaited first team debut came after four years of scoring goals for fun at the various youth team levels. And less than one month after his Bundesliga debut, Moukoko also became the youngest goalscorer in both the club’s and the league’s history.
To make your senior debut just one day after turning 16 is an incredible achievement in itself. And hopefully we will see Moukoko break several more records for Borussia Dortmund in the coming years.
