Kylian’s family has a sporting background. His mother was a handball player. And his father is a football coach. In fact, it was his father who used to coach him in his childhood.
It can be said that the family had sports in its blood. At home, young Kylian had an atmosphere that was conductive for sports. His parents encouraged him to go out and play. They supported him in as many ways as they could. This helped in shaping his career from an early phase.
Kylian’s father took him under his wings at a young age. Young Kylian was trained by his father at AS Bondy. Since beginning, Mbappe used to display his sparkling skills, sound technique and maturity that’d put elder players to shame.
Football prodigies in France manage to make their way to Clairefontaine Academy. The academy is well known for nurturing numerous France footballers.
For a talented kid like Mbappe, it was just a matter of time before he made his way to the academy. The academy played in huge role in further developing his skills and all-round personality.
His talent, skills and scintillating displays on the ground grabbed the attention of many European Clubs. Scouts began to keep a close eye on his development. Young Mbappe used to idolize Cristiano Ronaldo. He used to emulate the legendary Portuguese on the ground.

At AS Monaco, he has had many memorable nights on the ground. He was a joy to watch for fans and pundits. He cemented his roles as a winger in the team. He also could don other roles in forward area.
His marauding runs down the flank became a regular sight. Defenders were vary of facing him. He could beat them with his skills, pace and strength.
It was time for him to move to a bigger club now. PSG came swooping and signed him on a loan deal.
The loan deal was later made permanent. His transfer is among one of the most expensive deals in the history of football. At PSG, he shares the dressing room with big names such as Neymar, Cavani and Buffon.
