The 'African Messi''s most special gift: a present from Leo
At just 15 years old he is already wanted by top European clubs. He is called Youssoufa Moukoko and he is lighting up the Borussia Dortmund youth teams.
The young player has played a total of 71 matches (between u15 and u17), scoring 109 goals which gives him a ratio of 1.67 goals per match.
Moukoko is on course to break records at a young age and in a not so distant future, he could become a really important player as long as he keeps his head screwed on.
On Wednesday, the Dortmund goalscorer turned 15 and received a lot of birthday presents from friends and family... but there was a special one that excited him a lot.
The player who is nicknamed 'African Messi' received a special gift from Lionel Messi. Moukoko shared an image on his social media: "Thank you very much, Messi. My idol".
