A compilation of 17-year-old Warren Zaire-Emery vs AC Milan proves he is a generational talent

A compilation of 17-year-old Warren Zaire-Emery vs AC Milan proves he is a generational talent

PSG midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery has notched more assists than any other player in the Champions League this season.

A compilation of teenager Warren Zaire-Emery's Man of the Match performance against AC Milan is going viral.

On Wednesday night, the highly-rated 17-year-old midfielder, who has been Paris Saint-Germain's standout performer throughout the 2023/24 campaign, became the first player in the club's history to reach 20 starts before turning 18.

And he would soon break another record during their Group F clash with Milan, when he became the youngest player since 2003/04 to register two Champions League assists, overtaking Theo Walcott’s previous record.

Zaire-Emery, who also notched an assist against Newcastle earlier this month, controlled the middle of the park against Stefano Pioli's side as the Ligue 1 champions ran out 3-0 winners.

Check out a compilation of his performance below.

As you can see from the clip, Zaire-Emery contributes massively to both attacking and defensive phases of play. He can stop a counter attack but also has an eye for a pass.

In fact, Zaire-Emery's final third pass success rate [90.7%] is one of the highest in the Champions League group stage this season.

PSG manager Luis Enrique would label Zaire-Emery "one of the best young players in the world" in his post-match chat with CBS Sports.

"The way that he lives soccer and lives everything as a professional," Enrique added. "He is an example and we are very happy to have him."


Thierry Henry would soon lavish praise on the French teenager by saying "the sky's the limit" for PSG's young midfielder.

"The way Warren is playing, it is normal that he is running the show at 17 years old," the former Arsenal forward said. "He was the only one that held his ground at St James' Park.

"He has been magnificent at this moment and I know that people will say 'he is one of your players.' Yes he is, but that has nothing to do with it. He is outstanding -- the sky is the limit."

Henry added: "I have never seen a player that young being that mature."

Speaking in his post-match interview, Zaire-Emery said: "I am very happy to be man of the match. It was a team effort and we did it all together and had fun.

"We are a team and it shows on the field. We make every effort for each other. I did not play against Strasbourg, but I felt good here and I was well prepared for this game.

"All the better with my two assists. For sure, it was a good game of mine, but I have things to improve."
