Don Yusova Mukoko, the young star of Borussia Dortmund, is named in golden letters in the UEFA Champions League records after participating with his team against Zenit St Petersburg in the sixth round of the group stage.
Mukoko..the youngest to play in a European competition
According to a report published by the Spanish newspaper As, Mococo became the youngest player to participate in continental European competition, at the age of 16 years and 18 days, surpassing the number of Nigerian Celestine Papayaro, who participated at the age of sixteen and 84 days, who represented the colors of Anderlecht of Belgium in 1994.
Mukoko still has another achievement that can be achieved, as the achievement of being the youngest to score goals in European competitions looms on the horizon, and the number is currently registered in the name of Barcelona’s young star Ansu Fati, who scored against Inter Milan last season at the age of seventeen and 40 days.
Mococo, who Real Madrid and Barcelona have shown interest in his services, is good at playing in the right and left-wing positions. The outspoken striker has an opportunity to break Fati’s record as he still has a year ahead to achieve that achievement.
