One can primarily find news about his records, transfer rumors, and everything related to his professional life, but not his personal life.
Still, his fans want answers. Does Johan Bakayoko have a brother? Where does his family live? Read this article further to find out!
Johan Bakayoko is a Belgian professional soccer player who currently plays as a winger for the PSV Eindhoven of the Dutch soccer league, Eredivisie.
Born and raised in Belgium, Bakayoko practiced soccer at different youth academies in his country, including Club Brugge and Anderlecht, before he joined PSV’s academy in 2019.
Currently, in his early twenties, Johan has already played over 30 matches for the PSV’s senior team, scoring five goals. Before that, he played three seasons for its reserve team, Jong PSV.
Aside from his club career, he has already played for Belgium’s senior national team, for which he has scored a goal in five matches.
Johan Bakayoko Family: Does He Have A Brother?
Saint-Cyr Johan Bakayoko, better known as Johan Bakayoko, was born to African immigrant parents on April 20, 2003, in Overijse, Belgium.
His father was originally from Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. Similarly, his mother, Lucie Ozigbi, was from Rwanda.
However, it is unclear whether his parents met while in Africa or after they migrated to Europe.
Speaking more of his family, Bakayoko has never spoken if he has siblings.
His mom, Lucie, has posted a picture of a bunch of young kids on her social media handle alongside Johan, but it is unclear whether they are her kids.
As little is written about his family, it isn’t easy to access information about them. However, his family currently resides in Overijse, Belgium.
Furthermore, he has relatives in nearby European nations, including Germany and also in Rwanda, and Cote d’Ivoire.
Maybe because of this, people confuse French player Tiemoue Bakayoko and him as relative.
However, the two international soccer players are not related.
