Ethan Mbappé Rises Above Adversity, Nets Brace Amid Heckling

The Mbappé family’s youngest member, Ethan, was subjected to insults during a trip to the Coupe Gambardella. Despite this, he scored a brace against Le Mée Sports’ young team.

Paris Saint-Germain put ten goals past the youngsters from Le Mée Sports (10-0) on Sunday afternoon, five in each half, in their first federal round of the Coupe Gambardella. Mbappé scored twice in the first half.

Several videos show Mbappé responding to the provocations on the pitch, despite opposing fans showering him with insults each time he approached them.

He also took to Instagram to address the situation. Additionally, the match was briefly interrupted in the second half after the use of fireworks.

“We respond on the ground,” Mbappé stated (h/t RMC Sport).

It will be interesting to see how manager Luis Enrique proceeds with the 16-year-old and whether he sees any action this 2023-24 season. Could there be a repeat of how Warren Zaire-Emery eventually became a starter despite his young age? Only time will tell.
