Entertainment Samuel Eto'o compares Dortmund's mega-talent Moukoko with Lionel Messi!
Revamped Barcelona starts new season with spotlight on Messi
MADRID (AP) — Lionel Messi will be there when Barcelona starts its season on Sunday, just as he has been for the last two decades. His every move, however, will be scrutinized like never before. After all, never before had Messi told the club that he wanted to leave, and never before had Messi been forced to stay. Will Messi still give his best? Will he still be motivated? Will the transfer saga affect him? Some of those questions may start being answered on Sunday when Barcelona opens its Spanish league season against Villarreal at the Camp Nou.
Many BVB fans (and also a few who have nothing to do with the club) have already marked November 20, 2020 in their calendar as a precaution: on this day, the child prodigywill be 16 years old - and would then be eligible to play for the professional squad. But Moukoko's name is also making the rounds beyond Germany's borders. The Cameroonian old star even dreams of seeing him in the jersey of FC Barcelona at some point.
But it will probably take some time until then. After all, the Wonderboy has just reached the BVB professionals. Recently, in the person of his sports director Michael Zorc, he made no secret of the fact that the amendment to the statutes that the DFL decided on this spring with regard to the minimum age for professional players (which was reduced from 18 to 16 years) happened at the energetic instigation of the Westphalia.
Lionel Messi claimed that his summer demand to leave Barcelona was actually to make the club 'better and stronger'
Messi made the comments to Spanish newspaper Diario Sport, in his first interview since announcing he would stay at FC Barcelona.Speaking to Spanish newspaper Diario Sport in his first interview since announcing that he will stay at the club for one more year, Messi attempted to bury the hatchet between him and the club in recent months.
And who will blame them? Any club that has such a gem in their ranks wants to play with him as soon as possible. And those who don't have it think about how much money they will have to put on the table for it on day X. Eto'o's eulogies about the German-Cameroonian certainly do not make him cheaper.

"There is a young player at Borussia Dortmund. His name is Youssoufa Moukoko ", said the former world-class striker to SPOX and Goal about his compatriot. "He is 15 years old and the next big player for me after Messi. As Lionel is getting older, we could prepare well for the future at Barcelona."
Dreaming is also allowed. Especially since Eto'o goes one better and would like to see Kylian Mbappé next to Moukoko. Together with Antoine Griezmann. When these dreams don't cross with those of other clubs. For the time being, they await November 20th in Dortmund without any dreams and fully in reality. Which, I now like to lean a little further out of the window, will be a turning point in the history of the black and yellow.
