While his big brother chained the goals during the Chopped off of the world, the young Ethan Mbappe knew his first appearances with the professionals of PSG during friendly matches. Author of quite convincing performances given his young age, he aroused a certain enthusiasm on the web among Parisian followers. But what is the style of play and the real level of the little Mbappe ? Will he know a first match in the elite alongside Kylian ?
Born on December 29, 2006, Ethan has just celebrated his 16th birthday and yet he is already playing with a lot of maturity. If the style of play of his elder is closer to that of CR7, his could be closer to a Thiago Mottaa well-known name in the capital. Evolving in the heart Game, Ethan is often positioned as a defensive midfielder or torchbearer.
With the ball, it is very interesting! By the simplicity of his game (one or two touches of the ball), he fluidifies the phases of possession of his team. His quality of passing and his vision of Game give him the ability to break the opposing lines by alternating short game and long game.
If in the use of the ball, he knows how to get noticed, connoisseurs will also appreciate his work behind the scenes. Tall (1m76), left-handed and at ease with the ball, he stands out for his meaning placement that allows it to be efficient in the defensive phases. Player of character, he does not hesitate to repeat the races to close the breaches and above all, he is fully committed to the duels. He has a hybrid software allowing him to blend into a polished collective game while knowing how to be in combat and aggressiveness when the game demands it.
Upgraded to U19 since the start of the season, Ethan gained the trust of his coach Zoumana Camara (coach of the Paris Saint-Germain U19s) and took part in all the matches of Youth League. He will achieve solid performances, in particular with two assists in five group matches. It’s not pyou have nothing forr such a young player.
One step away from the elite!
So can he continue his classes an floore above, in the big leagues, alongside his brother, world football star? The one who signed an aspiring contract pro for three years, ifleads already regularly with the group pro and even if he absolutely has to toughen up both physically and tactically, it is not unlikely to see him make his debut in League 1 from this seasonnot.
Obviously the competition is raging in midfield and it’s not him farea insult to affirmr that he is not yet at the level to enter the rotation. But when we know thatEl Chadaille Bitshiabu (aged 17) has already had his first minutes in the top flight and that Christophe Galtier I’established when the championship resumed on December 28. That Warren Zaire-Emerythe other 16-year-old nugget years is also regularly convened with the group pro match days. He is even making a place for himself in the rotation this season and has already taken part in five matches in Ligue 1!
This is then proof that the policy of the PSG with his Tweety has changed a lot and that a projection with Ethan is possible. In a context where the PSG is French champion a few days from the end and is still engaged in the Champions League, it is not unlikely to attend a turnover larger at the end of the season. And who knows? Maybe the Qatari club will allow Kylian to play with his little brother before leaving the club…
