After today, it will be a full month before the 16th birthday of the genius Jusufah Mukoko. At present, the strongest U16 player in international football, the German teenager of Cameroon descent is already the future superstar in the minds of many experts. In addition to his recent troubles when he can make his debut in the first team, he is also depressed and confused by all kinds of discrimination in the German Youth League. Fortunately, his mentality was correct, Mukoko left it behind and waited for it to bloom a month later.
In the most recent round of the Bundesliga U19 League, Mukoko performed a hat-trick against his arch rival Schalke 04U19, helping the team win 3-2. This is his third hat-trick in the past three games. Mukoko has already scored 9 goals in 3 games in the new season. He is really not suitable for staying at the U19 level. For him, playing professional games is the right move. Because he has scored 40 goals in 22 league games since he cross-class participated in the U19 league last season, there is no need to continue wasting time in the youth league with his outstanding performance.
Just like a genius teenager who can go to university in advance, you have to let him finish high school step by step, and all you get is a dull and boring process. Mukoko's trouble is when he can grow up as soon as possible, especially when he gets closer to his goal, the more he looks forward to. With one month remaining, everyone is expecting him to break the Bundesliga and Champions League records, but don't forget how to protect him. Maintaining a normal mentality is the key to success.
Before the genius is about to start his professional career, I still hope that Mukoko will be mentally prepared. The professional game is not as easy as you think. Facing this big leap, the Dortmund club will not directly push him to the forefront of the team. Feel the atmosphere of the game, accumulate more experience, and release the spirit of the backlog, which is enough for Mukoko this season. After all, the team also has young elder brothers such as Sancho and Harland. The most important significance of Mukoko joining the first team is to change to a "high-level room" to level up. The boring life of "low-level room butchering young children" should end.
The troubles will never disappear, nor will they stop because Mukoko enters the first team. What awaits him is more challenging experience. He has a long, long way to go to become a real star. Entering the "premium room" is just the first step in his career marathon.
