In the past few days, speculation about a change of club from Borussia Dortmund’s Wunderkind Youssoufa Moukoko has increased. The reason for this should not only be the lean Borussia Dortmunding record of the center forward in the Bundesliga season 2021/2022, but also his relationship with BVB coach Marco Rose.
Only a starting eleven mission is available in the Bundesliga for Youssoufa Moukoko in the current season. Instead of establishing themselves as an offensive force in the German football upper house at the young age of 17, Borussia Dortmund’s youngster had to struggle with injuries and shape lows.
The result: A lean goal of the season succeeded, who once caused a sensation with outstanding hit rates in the BVB young classes.
According to the “Ruhr Nachrichten”, the weak season of the German junior national player also has atmospheric reasons. Accordingly, the ratio of Moukokos and BVB head coach Marco Rose should “not be unencumbered”.
Too often the Dortmund trainer had the striker braised on the bench, too rarely he got more than a few minutes of deployment time to continue to prove himself on the BVB offensive.
Youssoufa Moukoko’s future at BVB still uncertain
He was recently unable to build on his debut season with Borussia Dortmund’s professionals, when Moukoko, as the youngest scorer in Bundesliga history, met three times.
How tense the relationship between the storm talent and his head coach actually is is not completely known. However, it is clear that Moukoko definitely wants to go his next development step as a soccer professional. And this will certainly not be found on the BVB replacement bench in the long term.
It is now more open than ever whether Moukoko will start his last contract year with the Westphalia. Most recently, reports circulated that he could leave the association against a transfer payment of 15 to 20 million euros this summer.
