Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has emphasized the need for the club to build Youssoufa Moukoko’s future to a more dominant centre forward rather than opting to buy in the summer.
The recent rise of the 16-year old forward has forced the club to integrate him with the first team players for Bundesliga matches.
The last timeout, he was brought on for Erling Haaland, in the process, he was able to find the back of the net despite replacing the Norwegian goal machine.
Zorc has his reasons to keep Moukoko in the first team.
“We want to build Youssoufa Moukoko and not put someone in front of him,” said Michael Zorc according to Fussball Transfers.
Moukoko made history as he became the youngest goalscorers in the history of German Bundesliga in Borussia Dortmund 2-1 loss to Union Berlin last week Friday.
A guaranteed starting role in the absence of Haaland?
As per the words of the new coach Terzic, he’ll be in the starting lineup in the absence of Erling Haaland when they take on Eintracht Braunschweig in the DFB Pokal on Friday.
Dortmund is a team full of a youngster with potentials but still have gotten to the level of challenging Bayern Munich openly for the league title.
This season, the Yellow Wall were tipped to challenge for the title, but it looks tricky since the team is yet to find a good rhythm.
According to the words of Michael Zorc, BVB will continue working on Moukoko until he is fully ready for the big stage, and the club is not willing to sign any player in the centre forward.
Moukoko Dortmund’s future appears to be on the rise after every season and there are plans in place to make him a regular starter within the shortest time.
The German U19 player already looks ripe for first team football.
