Father Lamine Yamala proud of son’s achievements – “I knew he would become a star”

All is said and done. Spain will face England in the Euro 2024 final later this week and it’s safe to say Luis de la Fuente’s side go into the match as favourites.

One sec The Roya impressed all over the park, with Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams taking play after play in the final third of the pitch.

The Barcelona star is even tipped as one of the favourites to win the Player of the Tournament award.

In a recent interview with the media, Yamal’s father, Munir Nasraoui, spoke, among other things, about his son’s sudden rise to the elite football scene.

He began by expressing his feelings after his son’s heroism at the Euro, saying:

“I’m living it like everyone else, with joy and happiness and great love for all of Spain. We’ve reached the final and I’m proud and happy for all the players.”

Jamal’s father continued, stating that he always knew the young boy would become a superstar and that he would always support his talent.

“I knew he would be a star. Every father knows that, and every father wants his son to be the best” he said.

“I wish him all the best in life and the future and I hope they win the European Championship” he added, referring to Sunday’s final against England.

Nasraoui was then asked how Yamal felt about the constant media attention and fame, to which he replied:

“He is euphoric, he wants to be the youngest player to win the European Championship, like every child.”

One of the big stories this week was a photo of Lionel Messi bathing baby Lamine Yamal, and the boy’s father had an interesting take on whether that was the moment Messi “passed on his powers” to his son.

“The photo is an accident in life. Maybe it was Lamine who blessed Leo too” he joked.

Finally, he showered praise and blessings on his son, who is expected to be the next big star in world football.

“For me, he is the best in everything, not just in football, in love, in his personal life and in everything. He is a child and he has the blessing of God, which is very important and must be valued.”
