Schalke apologised on Sunday following the abuse after striker Moukoko scored a hat-trick

‘Derby emotions aside, we completely condemn and oppose such insults.’

In a tweet with the hashtag ‘NoToRacism,’ the club said its supporter relations department ‘will take the necessary measures.’

Moukoko, 15, is a highly-rated youngster and will be eligible for Dortmund’s senior team when he turns 16 on November 20. 

The treble on Sunday was his third hat trick in three competitive games after a 3-0 cup win against SV Wehen Wiesbaden and 5-0 league win at Preussen Munster.

Moukoko was born in Cameroon but has represented Germany’s youth teams and under-16 and under-20 level.

He was in the ranks of fellow German side St Pauli and played for their under-13 team but moved to the Dortmund academy in 2016.
