Leny Yoro becomes Lille’s youngest ever player beating Eden Hazard’s record

As reported by Le Petit Lillois, after his senior team debut off the bench during the win over OGC Nice last night, Lille’s teenage centre-back Leny Yoro became the club’s youngest ever player.

At just 16 years, six months and one day, Yoro’s 13 minutes played at Nice during the 3-1 Lille win made him the club’s youngest ever senior player, beating the record set by former Chelsea forward Eden Hazard who made his Lille debut at 16 years, 10 months and 17 days in 2007.

With considerable turnover likely at the club this off season and relatively limited resources available for new signings, the promising defender could become a prominent first team player for LOSC in the near future.
