He wasn’t a promising star…BVB raises the possibility that ’18-year-old monster FW’ lied about his age

The age of Yusupa Mukoko, who was called a replacement for Elling Haaland, was embroiled in controversy.

The British Daily Mail reported on the 13th (Korean time), “Mukoko, who was born in Yaounde, Cameroon and was adopted in Germany in 2014, is estimated to be 22 years old, not 18 years old.”

Born in 2004 on paper, Mukoko has been growing up at Dortmund’s youth since 2016. At the age of 14, he excelled in the U-17s, skipping grades every season, and was considered one of the greatest talents of all time. Due to these performances, he also debuted on the stage of his first team.

Mukoko broke all of his youngest records. He achieved the youngest ever appearance and scoring in the Bundesliga and the youngest appearance in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL). His performance this season has been much more anticipated. This is because the team’s key striker, Erling Haaland, has moved to Manchester City. 메이저놀이터

Mukoko has proven capable of filling the void left by Haaland. In the first half of the Bundesliga, he played 14 games and scored 6 goals and 4 assists, ranking first in the team in scoring. Due to these performances, he was also selected for the German national team. Mukoko was named to the final roster for the German national team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He even made his debut in the group stage against Japan.

Mukoko is a striker who combines technique and dribbling. Mukoko, who mainly plays in the one-top position, serves as a lubricant for the team’s offense through linkage, penetration, and mid-range shooting at the forefront. However, it is evaluated that there are regrets in his physical aspect.

But recently, questions about her age have been raised. The media said, “Cameroon’s under-17 team prepared for this month’s Nations Cup qualifiers, and 21 out of 30 players failed the age test.” “Now it is claimed that a birth certificate with the name Yusufa Mukoko, born in 2000, has been found in Germany.”

It is argued that Mukoko, who is currently known to have been born in 2004, may have been born in 2000. Meanwhile, the German Football Association (DFB) has stated that “there is no doubt about the accuracy of the player’s age. In this matter, the DFB relies on the player’s club details.”
