Kenny Lala (born 3 October 1991) is a French football player who plays for French club Strasbourg in Ligue 1. He plays as a right-back and is of Martiniquais descent.
Lala began his career with local amateur club ES Parisienne before signing with semi-professional club Paris at the age of 17. Prior to signing with the club, Lala had trials with professional clubs Lille, Caen, and Valenciennes. After two seasons playing on Paris' reserve team, he was promoted to the club's senior team for the 2010–11 season. A successful campaign, in which Lala made 33 league appearances, resulted in the player being linked to several Ligue 1 clubs, most notably Valenciennes who offered Paris €100,000 for his services.
Despite declining the initial offer, on 15 June 2011, Paris reached an agreement with Valenciennes on a transfer for Lala. He signed a four-year contract with the Northern outfit. Lala was assigned the number 18 shirt by manager Daniel Sanchez and was placed onto the club's first team, though he has played on the club's reserve team in the Championnat de France amateur. Lala made his professional debut on 6 November 2011 in a 1–1 draw with Rennes appearing as a substitute.
In June 2017, Lala joined Strasbourg on a two-year contract.
Lala was born in Paris and grew up in the 18th arrondissement of Paris near the Porte de Clignancourt. He has two sisters. Lala's mother previously worked as a saleswoman for Zara and was also his sports agent having handled the player's four-year fédérale contract he signed with Paris FC. She now works for the public management and construction company l'Opac de Paris.
