Ni Kylian Mbapp, Randal Kolo Muani, Kang-in Lee. The true leaderof Paris Saint-Germain in the victory against Milan (3-0)fue Warren Zare-Emery (Montreuil, 8-3-2006). It is not surprising, therefore, that the youngest debutant in PSG history (16 years, 4 months and 29 days) will take the ‘MVP’. “I had a great game. He gave two assists and brought impressive energy to the center of the field. A great performance for such a young boy,” the UEFA Technical Observer Panel justified.
“I love him, without a doubt, he is an incredible footballer. He looks like he is 37 years old and not 17. “I’m lucky to have him because he’s a diamond in the rough.”Luis Enrique warned at the end of August. He is so young that only five years ago, in Arona,coincide in the edition of ‘LaLiga Promises’ 2018 with Barcelona’s Marc Guiu. For ‘Lucho’ it’s a fix. There are only three outfield players who have accumulated more minutes this season than ‘WZE’ (918). “I already played a lot with Galtier,” admits the Spaniard.

Against Milan he starred two powerful ‘rides’ in the form of assistance that ‘shaken’ the foundations of the Parque de los Prncipes and allowed it defeat Theo Walcott (17 years and 250 years) As the youngest player (17 years and 231 days) to give two assists in the same gamethe champions since ‘Opta’ began recording data in 2003-04. “At my age we play, we have fun and we don’t realize it. It’s something that’s in my mind and I don’t think it’s going to change,” Zare-Emery commented on the ‘RMC’ microphones with the same self-confidence with which he plays.

“It’s Deschamps’ job, not mine,” Luis Enrique responded when asked if he is ready to go with the French national team. However, he did not spare his praise for PSG’s ’33’: “He does everything well: he is active, aggressive, recovers balls, gives assists and is decisive in front of the goal. He is the perfect example for all young people. I’m very happy with her level.”

Reason is not lacking. Zare-Emery is PSG’s top assistant so far this season -He has five assists on goals, three more than any other teammate- and the Champions. He is, in addition, the eighth player with the best passing percentage in Ligue 1 (91%) and the seventh who gives the most passes in the last third of the field (58) and the Paris Saint-Germain player who has traveled the most kilometers (34.6) so far in the Champions League. Two more than the next.

But, if ‘WZE’ stands out for something, it is for the power of his driving to beat lines and break up close matches. His start from his own field to leave Reijnders behind -despite the continuous grabbing- and make it 1-0 and his entry from the right to serve the 3-0 to Kang-in Lee still have France and Zare-Emery himself speechless. : “Before I would have fallen, I think. But I stayed upright, managed to leave him (Reijnders) behind and give the decisive pass to Kylian.”

“He is 17 years old and already grown up. ‘WZE’ is establishing itself, like never before, as an essential part of the Parisian landscape”stressed ‘L’quipe’, which also emphasized that The young youth squad was the PSG player who recovered the most balls (8) against Milan. It must be said, yes, that he lost 12.
However, the most explicit when talking about Zare-Emery this time has been, also in the pages of ‘L’quipe’, Vikash Dhorasoo. “At 17 years old, I had not yet made my debut with Le Havre. He, on the other hand, is very strong. It has been a long time since we have seen him resist blows, hand-to-hand combat, that well. “In this type of match, at the highest level, a lot of lactic acid accumulates in the legs, you have to be very strong to make the two starts that he has performed.”.

The former PSG and Milan player, world runner-up with France in 2006, also left a comparison to remember: “He has a very powerful lower body. “In certain actions he reminds me of Eden Hazard for his ability to add acceleration after an initial acceleration.”. There is no doubt about one thing: the new ‘bug’ of Paris Saint-Germain is called to mark an era in Europe.
