took the time to praise his youngest teammateYoussoufa Moukoko
. Haaland who was replaced by the 16-year-old called Moukoko as “big talent” considering his age and performance.
"I think he's the biggest talent in the world right now," Haaland told
. "Sixteen years and one day, that's quite amazing. He has a big career ahead of him."
“I'm over 20 years, I'm getting old now. That's how it is," he added with a smile.
On the other hand to reduce the hype around the player Dortmund coach Favre said: "He's trained with us now for 14 days. Seven or eight players were away on international duty. It was 5-2 and it was good for him to play his first Bundesliga game but of course he has to keep working."
"He's very, very young. We have a lot of attacking players, a lot who haven't played today."
