She gets afraid for her son

Lamine revealed that his mother gets afraid for him. 

During an interview after the match between Barcelona and Villarreal, he said his mother was afraid for him when he started but she supports him a lot. 

He further said that he will take advantage of every opportunity the manager gives him as he is not afraid. 

On September 13, 2023, she posted a series of pictures of herself in the stadium to watch her son play for the Spain national team with the caption,

Always with you

How did she help in building her son's career?

After the divorce, Sheila started working at a fast food chain to provide for her son. 

While working there, she met Inocente Diez who played a vital role in Lamine's career. 

Inocente used to work as a coordinator at La Torreta football club and encouraged Sheila to enroll Lamine in the club. 

Inocente said he could tell Lamine was special and it seemed like he was touched by a magic wand. 

Even when he went to live with his father, he would ask Inocente to pick him up and take him to training as his father was not able to accompany him to training as he didn’t have a car. 

On the way to the training, they would often talk and Inocente would tell him one day Barcelona would come and sign him but Lamine would say no, no. 

Inocente described him as a shy, well-reserved, sweet, humble, and charming boy who would always listen to his advice. 

He still goes to see him and is still in touch with his childhood friends and doesn’t show off. 

Sheila and Lamine moved to Barcelona when he was seven years old and he joined the youth team of Barcelona

On the weekends, she used to drive her son to Barcelona games. 

Her ex-husband defended their son

Lamine became a victim of a controversial comment made by a pundit. 

During the game between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain in Catalonia, the former goalkeeper, Mono Burgos, made a disgraceful comment about Lamine

He said if he doesn’t do well he could end up in a traffic light. 

This comment led to an uproar on social media and players from both teams even refused to do a post-match interview with the Movistar, a Spanish outlet. 

Her ex-husband, Mounir, took to Instagram to defend their son and uploaded an Instagram story that read 

Good morning world, I just ask you to respect other people's children. Thanks.

Movistar and Mono Burgos later issued an apology and made sure such an incident would not occur again.
