Coming into play twice at the end of the match, Warren Zaire-Emery became the youngest player to make his debut in the history of PSG. This season, he is also the youngest to have played in Ligue 1.
Precocity records fall for Warren Zaire-Emery. Last August, the talented 16-year-old midfielder was offered his first minutes of play by Christophe Galtier against Clermont (0-5). At 16 years, 4 months and 29 days, he then became the youngest player to make his professional debut in the Parisian tunic. But the native of Montreuil does not stop there. Having entered the game twice since the start of the championship, the European U17 champion with France is also the youngest member of Ligue 1 so far this season.
He is also the only player from the 2006 generation represented in the table while the podium is completed by Leny Yoro (LOSC) and Désiré Doué (Rennes), two players from the 2005 generation.
PSG refused to loan him this summer
If his playing time is only counted in simple minutes scraped on the ground, Warren Zaire-Emery impresses at training sessions and is already establishing himself as a serious alternative in the middle. This week, L’Équipe revealed that the capital club had dismissed loan offers that arrived at the very end of the transfer window to keep him in its ranks. A role in the rotation is particularly foreseen for him after the World Cup where the international organizations will surely need to breathe.
