If the quote "valour depends not upon age" applies to anyone, it must be Kylian Mbappé Lottin, the precocious talent who has easily made the step up from the U19s to Ligue 1, all in the space of a few short months, and before his seventeenth birthday... Portrait of a special footballer, a lightning-fast winger born in 1998... a golden year for French football.
The youngest ever player to represent AS Monaco at professional level, Kylian Mbappe-Lottin also became the club’s youngest ever goalscorer when he bagged the Monegasques’ third goal at ESTAC, taking over the record from Thierry Henry.
On Saturday 21 May could be another very important date for Kylian. On that day, he will be playing in the final of the Coupe Gambardella with his teammates in the U19s. Against Lens, at the Stade de France: "We have a chance to write history, to write our history. We have a big hurdle to overcome. The final against Lens. A big French club."
