Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappé is one of the most influential black footballers of our time. Born on December 20th, 1998, he has amazed the world with his exceptional talent and skill. He is the forward for the Ligue 1 club “PSG” and the captain of the France national team in the World Cup, Mbappé has become a household name and an idol for millions of young football fans and people of the black community. Mbappé is famous for his dribbling, speed, and scoring abilities. He started his professional football career at 16, quickly becoming one of the best teenage players in football history. 

Mbappé’s rise to fame has been nothing short of amazing. He was born in Paris and raised in the nearby town of Bondy, where he developed an early passion for football. He began his career with the local club “AS Bondy” before transferring to the Ligue 1 team of “AS Monaco” in 2013. There, he made his professional debut at the young age of 16. He quickly began to grow his talent, fame, and skill, and at such a young age, he gained a lot of admiration.

In 2017, at the age of 18, Mbappé signed for PSG on a permanent transfer worth €180 million($193,929,300), making him the second-most-expensive player in football history and the most expensive teenage player ever. At PSG, he became even more famous and improved his skills.

Mbappé’s influence extends beyond football. He has influenced many other black children and teens through the sport of football and he has become loved because of it. At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup, as well as the second teenager, after Pelé, to score in a World Cup final. He led his team to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup. He has inspired a new generation of football fans and people of the black community around the world and hopefully, he can continue doing so.

 

Now, Mbappé is regarded as one of the best young players in the world and possibly one of the best in history. In 2023, he was among Time’s 100 most influential people in the world, and he ranked third on the Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid athletes. With his incredible talent, hard work, and dedication, Mbappé will continue inspiring millions for years to come.
