Fayza Mbappe is the proud soccer mom of French prodigy striker, Kylian Mbappe. Aside from playing for the French national team, her son is also signed to Ligue 1 club AS Monaco.

He also attended Clairefontaine academy –the French Football Federation’s regional center of excellence for l’Isle de France in 2011.

At the age of 15, when students leave Clairefontaine after two years to enter the professional club system, Mbappé turned down every other Ligue 1 side, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern Munich to join Monaco and moved to the principality to continue his education.
At Monaco Mbappé made his first-team debut on December 2, 2015, becoming Monaco’s youngest-ever player at 16. The following February, at the age of 17 became Monaco’s youngest scorer with a late goal in the 3-1 victory over Troyes.
