Breel Embolo

The “Neue Zürcher Zeitung” has hailed him as a wonder kid. He is undoubtedly a star. He has been playing in FC Basel’s first team since March 2014. He became a naturalised Swiss citizen last year in an accelerated procedure. He is now the youngest member of the Swiss national squad, while he also had the option of representing Cameroon. Several top European clubs are now setting their sights on signing him. He remarks: “I’m not that interested in these rumours. I’ll talk to those in charge when I feel the time is right. For the moment I just want to play football.”
