Raphael Guerreiro

thinks that

Youssoufa Moukoko

is a great talent with so much potential, but he needs time to develop as a player.

The 16-year-old striker has made a record as the youngest player to play in Bundesliga and has shown so much quality since the first time he got a chance, but his senior teammate insists that we shouldn’t expect overnight success from such a young player and that we should wait and give the player the time to progress.

"He has enormous quality,"

the Portugal international told the

Bundesliga's official website


"He's a very good finisher in front of goal. He's very fast as well. He's young so he needs time to adapt to the Bundesliga.

"He has already scored two goals, which is amazing for a 16-year-old. But I think he needs time to adapt to our game and our football. He's been training with us almost since the beginning of the season, he's getting to know his team-mates.

"It's all new for him - the opponents are different. They're not 19 or 20-year-olds anymore. It's challenging for him. But he's a very good player and I'm certain that he'll show that in the coming years.

"He needs to be given time, he cannot be judged on his first matches. He needs time to work on himself, and in the coming years he'll show his full talent."
