Moukoko praises Terzic and confirms contact with Flick
Talk of Youssoufa Moukoko making it onto Hansi Flick’s World Cup squad is only likely to increase after the 17-year-old bagged a brace in Borussia Dortmund’s 4-0 win over regional rivals VfL Bochum on Saturday. 

During his post-match comments, the German phenom credited his tight relationship with BVB trainer Edin Terzic and confirmed that he had been in contact with Flick last week. 

Moukoko confirmed that he had been in contact with Flick during his post-match interview.

“He [Flick] said that I should just carry on like this,” Moukoko stated, “[He said] they are watching everything and in the end those who perform will be there.”

“I can’t influence it,” the youngster added, “I can only bring my performance. In the end, the national coach will decide. On Thursday [the day Flick is expected to announce the squad], we will see who is in.”

“I received a tip from Edin around the 25th minute that he [Riemann] is always off his line,” Moukoko noted “That’s why I held my head up for a moment tried it with my right foot And then it was in.”

“This year I’ve just become more stable and gained more confidence,” he continued, ” Edin also gives me confidence and talks to me a lot. We also work a lot outside with videos where he shows me what I can do better.”

“In the end, you see that on the pitch,” he concluded, “I have the trust of Edin. It was a great goal. What can I say? Training, training, training and then something like this happens.”
