African football icon Samuel Eto’o believes Borussia Dortmund’s Youssoufa Moukoko could replace Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona.
Eto’o, who is a Barcelona legend, has explained that Messi’s is fast approaching his last chapter’s at the clu, and a successor is already around.
"There is a young player at Borussia Dortmund. His name is Youssoufa Moukoko. He is 15 years old and the next big player for me after Messi," Eto’o said at the LaLiga Santander Ambassadors Gala on Tuesday.
"As Lionel is getting older, we could prepare well for the future at Barcelona.
The Cameroonian legend added that Moukoko, who made news for snatching a third straight hattrick for Dortmund’s U19’s last weekend, is a potential Antoine Griezmann partner.
"With Antoine (Griezmann) and Youssoufa on the front line, the team would be in a great position,” he concluded.
