There is hardly any football fan who doesn’t know who Kylian Mbappe is. THE 2018 FIFA Football World Cup-winning Frenchman Mbappe plays as a forward alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain. Regarded as one of the premier players in the football world, Mbappe showed his class from a very junior age, thanks to his unmatched dribbling, pace, and finishing skills.

At the age of 16, he began his senior career with Ligue 1 club Monaco, making his professional debut in 2015. Today, he is a world-famous footballer. But surprisingly enough, not much is known about Kylian Mbappe’s parents. Today, we will reveal the mystery surrounding Mbappe’s family. Let’s get started.

Kylian Mbappe comes from a humble middle-class family. His mother’s name is Fayza Lamari. She used to be a handball player during her younger days. Kylian Mbappe’s father’s name is Wilfried Mbappé, who himself used to be a footballer as well as a football coach.

Apart from Kylian, Wilfred and Fayza have an adopted son, Jirès Kembo Ekoko, a retired professional football striker. Being sportsmen themselves, Kylian Mbappe’s parents ensured that their children too take up sports as a living.

Kylian Mbappe is a French national born in Paris. However, his parents have different roots. Once a refugee, Kylian’s father Wilfred migrated from Cameroon to France. Wilfred’s parents, on the other hand, have Nigerian roots.

Kylian Mbappe’s mother, Fayza, on the other hand is an Algerian of Kabyle origin. French media reports claim that the couple married in France in order to get permanent French citizenship. Football fans must be glad that Wilfred and Fayza met and got married. Otherwise, the football world wouldn’t have witnessed a behemoth in the form of the future-GOAT Kylian Mbappe.

Kylian Mbappe got his family’s support since his childhood

In France’s Bondy commune, where the Mbappe family lived, a series of riots and public demonstrations took place regularly. For the uninitiated, Bondy is a city known for riots and social unrest. But Wilfred and Fayza ensured that such circumstances did not affect Kylian’s future. They got him trained and stood by his football dreams, despite the turbulence in their neighbourhood. In an interview, Wilfred once said that his soccer-obsessed child didn’t let go of the ball and that he used it as a sleeping tool.
