“More mature” than Michut and Simons: Warren Zaire-Emery, European Championship U17 for a professional contract with PSG?

A cannon shot for a spotlight. Warren Zaire-Emery opened the scoring in the semi-final of European U17 on Sunday with a powerful right shot from 25 meters. It took him less than eight minutes to distinguish himself in this encounter, in which the French team qualified at the expense of Portugal (2-2, 6-5 on penalties). But the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder did not wait for this express goal to attract attention. Its potential is not in question.

The 16-year-old Zaire-Emery is on his second goal in the competition. A European Championship that the French will try to win against the Netherlands in Netanya next Wednesday from 6 p.m. Against Bulgaria (4-0) his first achievement came from a ball recovered in the opponent’s area and then calmly shot into the goal. An impression of mastery that he gives “in advance”. This season we have already seen him at work in the Youth League, with the Paris club’s U19 team.

Xavi Simons, a symptomatic case at PSG? “There is a problem with the overall strategy”

“If you don’t see his year of birth…”

Warren Zaire-Emery doesn’t just play the utilities. He played eight of the eight matches in the “Youth Champions League”. Almost always a starter, he scored a goal and provided an assist on his only use of the bench, which proved crucial in a success against Bruges (3-2) in December 2021. While he wasn’t, he was only 15 years old (he was born on March 8, 2006). Consultant for RMC Sport, Mathieu Bodmer sees him as the greatest talent of the PSG training center.
If you don’t see his year of birth…You have the feeling that he is the most mature player on the pitch, above Michut and Simons, who are already playing with the professionals.”, the former player of OL, LOSC or even PSG believes. All without frills, according to Baptiste Pousse, coach of the Saint-Pryvé Saint-Hilaire U19s. †He [Zaïre-Emery] don’t do anything superfluous. It’s not about the individual aspect, the look, the perk‘, he considers with the newspaper Le Parisien.

“It’s probably the best I’ve seen”

Heprefers sobriety and that is why he is way ahead of the others“, added the coach beaten by the youngsters of PSG, including Zaire-Emery, in February (1-4). Educator within the club of the capital, Hervé Guégan continues: “For me he plays with the maturity of a 19-20 year old player. It doesn’t make a sound, but when we do match analysis, it’s always at the top of the pileIn its position, in its age range and even above this is definitely the best I’ve seen

Praise all the more interesting because they don’t cover Warren Zaire-Emery’s physique. He also knows how to box on the top floor in this area: 1.78m, fast and with good support. But it’s not because of his early growth that he has been regularly “upgraded” since his arrival at Paris Saint-Germain in the U8. This shifts from his horizon the pitfall of breaking the teeth of the big ones, after having taken advantage of a clear morphological advantage for a long time.

What really struck us, all the football school teachers at that time, is that when you have high potential players, they generally have very strong intrinsic qualities, but they don’t know all the time to use it, don’t have maturitydevelops Abdou Fall, who officiated at PSG, in the Scouting podcast of RMCWhat was clear? (when he was 8 or 9 years old, editor’s note)It was his reading of the game and his analysis of situations that were incredible. He optimized his qualities

Second in an eloquence contest

A skill he retains at U17 level. At the European Championship, his quarter-final match against Germany (1-1, 4-3 on pens) testified to this, with a litany of recovered balls and the ability to break the lines thanks to his timing and speed. Several echoes show that he is not a very vocal leader. But it’s not necessarily a problem of fluency. Proof ? He took 2nd place this year in an eloquence contest organized by the PSG training center.

The rumor of a professional contract signed within days with the club in which he has been developing for eight years is starting to surface. But Warren Zaire-Emery has first to win a European U17 Championship. He and his team-mates could allow France to put his name on the list of winners for the event for the third time, after 2004 and 2015. If his maturity matches that of his game, he will face it this Wednesday. standing field. †
