The 16-year-old Italian made his debut for AS Monaco on Friday against Dijon.

Pietro Pellegri continues to break records. Coming onto the pitch for the final few minutes in the game against Dijon, Pellegri managed to break Kylian Mbappe’s record at Monaco.

In fact, he broke the Ligue 1 record that had stood for 40 years, with an age of 16 years, 11 months and two days.

In his four minute cameo, Pellegri managed to dribble one opponent and draw a foul.
