Youssoufa Moukoko becomes youngest Champions league player


Borussia Dortmund youngster, Youssoufa Moukoko, has overtaken Nigeria’s Celestine Babayaro as the youngest player ever to feature in the Champions League.

Babayaro in the last 26 years had enjoyed the tag of being the youngest player to ever feature in the premium club competition but has now dropped on the pecking order.

Babayaro, a former Super Eagles defender, became the youngest player in UEFA Champions League history when he started for Anderlecht in the 1994/95 group stage.

Babayaro was just 16 years and 87 days. However, Moukoko has lowered the mark when he featured for Dortmund on Tuesday at 16 years and 18 days.
