Kilyan Mbappe is one of the most famous soccer players in the past few years. And Fayza Lamari is his manager. But she is also his mother. There was a fun argument in the media a few years ago, that his mother preferred that club over that one.
In the end, many believe that Mbappe choose the team he wanted. With that in mind, who is Fayza Lamari? How much influence does she have over her son?
She is known for being the mother of Paris Saint Germain star and French national soccer team player Kylian Mbappe. But at one point, she was a sports star as well. Fayza is a former handball player who represented France at both club and international levels.
Nowadays, Fayza is the driving force behind her son’s success.
Who Is Her Son?
Born in December 1998, Kylian Mbappe Lottin is a French professional footballer who plays forward for Paris Saint-Germain and the France national team. At the World Cup 2018, he was chosen as the best young player, helping France win the Gold medal.
He is renowned for his dribbling abilities, speed, and finishing. Born in Paris and raised in Bondy, Kylian began his senior club career in 2015 playing for Monaco. With Monaco, he won the Ligue 1 title, and in 2017, at the age of only 18, signed for Paris Saint-Germain.
There are several conspiracies about Kylian, including one about his father. Wilfried Mbappe is originally from Cameron, and his mother is of Algerian Kabyle origin. As you can see, Kylian could have played for other countries, but choose France.
He has a younger brother, Ethan Mbappe, who also played for Paris Saint-Germain, but for the under-12 squad in 2018.
Growing up, he idolized Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo Nazario, and Cristiano Ronaldo. Yet, as a kid, he aspired to play for Real Madrid. But when he got the offer and chose between Real and PSG, he chose the latter. Mbappe hopes to win the Champions League with French Club Paris Saint Germain.
Mbappe made his senior debut for France at age 18 in 2017. During the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Moscow, Russia, he became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup. He also became the second teenager, after Pele, to score in the World Cup Final.
Before the summer of 2022, there were many rumors that Mbappe will switch teams and will ask for a trade. He was close to signing with Real Madrid. But in the end, he remained in Paris.
He has since revealed that even president Emanuel Macron asked him to remain in Paris. Speaking about his decision, he said during the signing, “I am convinced that here I can continue to grow at a club that provides everything necessary to perform at the highest level. I am also delighted to continue to play in France, the country where I was born, where I have grown up, and where I have made my name”.
The numbers of his new deal with PSG are astonishing, and the media doesn’t even know every detail of it. But he earns about $50 million per year. And he secured a signing bonus of $100 million.
Now, who is his mother? How much do we know about Fayza Lamari? Although she became quite popular thanks to the rise of her son, she has had achievements as a professional sports player. Fayza is a former handball player who played during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
She played for the French national handball team and the AS Bondy handball team. Many admire her for the sacrifices she made for her son to have a great career.
According to multiple reports, she was born in France in 1974. But she also has an Algerian heritage. She is a Kabyle, a Berber ethnic group native to Kabylia in northern Algeria. Her parents raised her with affection and care.
Yes, she is a citizen of France, but her family has African roots and they can be traced to the group in the northern African country.
Fayza is the loving wife of Wilfried Mbappe and mother of three sons. Those are Ethan Mbappe, Jires Kembo Ekoko, and Kylian. She began her professional career as a handball player and played right wing in French Division 1.
Mbappe’s Childhood Story
When we talk about KylianMbappe, we also have to talk about his childhood story. He was just a baby when France won the 1998 World Cup at Stade de France. He was the first child of his parents.
But his youthful years were not very pleasant. Yes, his mother was a handball player, but salaries were not as high back in the day. Even nowadays, handball players earn a fraction of what football players earn.
So, the family was living in a Paris suburb, a town once ravaged by violence and rioting. These happened in the area where Mbappe’s family lived.
The suburb is located just a few miles away from Paris, but it is a breeding ground for crime and terrorism.
But thanks to Wilfried, Mbappe’s father, who is also a football coach, Kylain is alive and well. His dad vowed to safeguard his child’s future.
Growing up, he would never let go of the soccer ball. His obsession went as far as him taking the ball to his bed and using it as a pillow. His family belongs to a largely working-class community.
Supporting Her Son
FayzaLamari is now a successful sports agent representing her son. She finds ways to support him. She says she is happy with the man he has become.
The famous French football player helps and speaks about children in need. He and alongside his mother, has started the Kylian Mbappe Foundation (KM).
Speaking about his son, she said, “When he becomes a world champion, as a former sportswoman, I am indeed happy, but what I am most proud of is the man he has become. The time is not over. He still has time to grow as a person, but today I am proud of him, of course.”
Here is a fun fact: Fayza’s children are all football players. Two of her children are biological children, and one is adopted. The adopted one is Jires Kembo Ekoko, while her biological children are Kylain and Ethan.
Ethan now plays for the under-17 PSG team. He was born in December 2006. Jires Kembo is her first child, and he was adopted a few months after Fayza got married to Wilfred. He was born in January 1988 in Kinshasa, Zaire, and moved to France when he was six years old.
He was a former youth international player for France. He retired in 2019. During his career, he played for four teams, appeared in 160 games, and scored 47 goals.
How much is the net worth of Kylian’s mother? Well, does she earn a commission from the contract Mbappe signs?
We do not know that for sure. But we do know that her son has a net worth of $150 million. He is one of the highest-paid soccer players on the planet. According to some reports, his contract with PSG is for two years guaranteed, and a third one optional. If he plays the entire three years in Paris, he will earn a whopping $650 million from PSG.
Her net worth, on the other hand, is between $1 million and $5 million.
