Faiza Lamari is of Algerian origin. In the entourage of the star of France, she is more than her mother. Faiza Lamari occupies an important place in the management of Kylian Mbappé.
To protect her son, Faiza Lamari does not hesitate to come forward publicly. He has already done so in May 2022 when the soap opera of his son’s transfer to Real Madrid was in full swing. Kylian Mbappé has finally stayed at Paris Saint-Germain.
A former handball player, Faiza Lamari evolved in the French division within club AS Bondy in the 90s. She later switched to communication and image consultancy.
Faiza Lamari actively participates in the management of Kylian Mbappé’s career, especially in terms of image and communication, while her father Wilfrid Mbappé manages the football part, as indicated by Gala magazine.
Kylian Mbappé, a world star to manage
Faiza Lamari’s name often appears in the French sports press as one of the pillars of Kylian Mbappé’s entourage. She is described there as a woman who has “great character”
Born in Bondy in 1974 to Algerian parents, she said she gave her son a rigorous education. “He was the son of a black and a rebeu, I knew that she would have suffered the triple penalty,” explains Faiza Lamari for the Parisian.
Currently the son is sitting at the table of the big names on the planet. At Paris Saint-Germain he is one of the highest paid stars together with Messi and Neymar.
In the French team, his performance at the 2022 World Cup consecrated him as the absolute protagonist of the group in the absence of 2022 Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema, package due to injury and who announced the end of his international career with the Blues the day after the final lost by France against Argentina.
For his part, Faiza Lamari is just behind managing the contracts of his son in the smallest details who will not fail to be requested in the coming years if he remains at these levels.
