Fayza Lamari, mother of Kylian Mbappé, recently set up her agency to represent her son. She would also like to advise Achraf Hakimi, a close friend of the French striker. Nonsense for the agent of the Moroccan.
The rag is burning. Some time ago, Fayza Lamari, the mother of Kylian Mbappe, announced to create its own agency to represent players. With in the first place of course, the star striker of the Paris Saint Germain. But not only, other names have filtered.
Ethan Mbappelittle brother of Kylian and also fired at PSG, should be advised by his mother. Fayza Lamari would also have approached Rayan Cherki or even Achraf Hakimi, two players dubbed by the 2018 world champion. Methods that do not please those around the Moroccan defender very much.
“We are surprised that by the one and only fact of being the mother of a major player, she can meddle in the market, explains Alejandro Camaño, Achraf Hakimi’s agent, during an interview with AS. Achraf is part of the Footfeel family and has been convinced of the project for many years. He has a personal relationship with Kylian that we respect, and we love him for it. Being the mother of a player is not enough, it seems to me a lack of respect for the profession. We think it’s a hoax.»

“For us, Mbappé’s mother is just Mbappé’s mother”
Above all, the Spanish sexagenarian, who considers Achraf Hakimi as his own son, only very moderately appreciates the barely disguised rapprochement of the mother of Kylian Mbappe. “What bothers me is entering a market trying to reach people who have another agent. I understand that they want Achraf, he is the best full-back in the world, but that is not an explanation for saying that he is leaving with them. There is no chance.»
Finally, Alejandro Camaño is intransigent. The 24-year-old Moroccan defender will not change representatives. “It is impossible, unthinkable. Fayza Lamari is a company that has none other than Kylian Mbappé, which is very important, of course, but it is based on a relationship between mother and son. No, for us Mbappé’s mother… she’s just Mbappé’s mother. It is not an agent or a representative company that we can take into account.»
