In an interview, when asked if being the son of Lilian Thuram, who won the World Cup, put him under pressure, his answer was no, never because he always saw his father as his father, not a soccer player. 

He didn't know until the age of 12 or 13 that his father was a famous soccer player, but before that, he saw him as his dad. 

He came home, checked his homework, and did his duties as a father. As he grew older, he realized his father was famous and did important things in football.

Thuram is more prouder of what his father has been doing now than what he did on the pitch. 

His father has been working on his foundation, which aims to educate people about racism, since retiring in 2008


He was born on the 6th of August, 1997. He is currently 26 years old.

Net Worth 

His net worth is estimated to be around £10 million.

His parents are no longer together 

Thuram was born to his parents, Lilian and Sandra Thuram, but his parents are no longer together. 

He has a younger brother, Khephren, who is also a professional footballer. 

Their father named him after Jamaican activist Marcus Garvey and his brother after Egyptian pharaoh Khephren.

Following their parents' divorce, his father was in a relationship with a French Television host, Karine Le Marchand. 

They dated for six years, from 2007 to 2013. He has been married to his current wife, journalist Kareen Guiock, since August 2022

Their wedding took place at the Palace of Fontainebleau.

His journey to becoming an international ace

Thuram started playing football as soon as he started walking. 

He started with swimming and basketball initially, but he realized he only wanted football, so he started playing football at home before joining the club at the age of eight. 

His surname never became a problem for him. It was all normal for him.

If not a footballer then he might have been an actor. He did a bit of acting and he loved it, he said.

Thuram started his career as a winger but gradually became a striker after his coaches and his father told him that it was better to play as a striker. 

He grew up idolizing Brazilian legendary footballer Ronaldo and shared that his mother once fooled him using his passion for the legend. 

According to him, he met his idol at some events with his father. When he was little, he had a blanket that he carried everywhere. 

His mother didn't want him to take it to school, so she tricked him, telling him they had to give it to Ronaldo, so he left it.

His journey was not easy. "When I got injured, I had to come to Inter 2021. It was tough, and luckily, my father and my brother were there to help me", he said. 

He credits his success to his father. 

His father taught him to never give up and always told him to do what he liked and enjoy what he did on the pitch and in terms of value, he talked about respect for people.

Who is his girlfriend?

Thuram appears to be single as of now since there are no signs of him being in a relationship. 

He was spotted with a mysterious lady but he is yet to confirm if she is his girlfriend.
