Warren Zaïre-Emery on PSG: “Every week there’s something new.” 

PSG took a step closer to their record-breaking eleventh Ligue 1 title after a 3-1 win against Troyes on Sunday. Even with that success all but wrapped up, change is surely coming to Paris next Ligue 1 season. While there are many questions over the summer upheaval to come, Warren Zaïre-Emery’s commitmnet to the club seems unwavering.  

The young sensation continued to impress by not only starting, but playing out of position at right wing-back this weekend. With this win, PSG now have a six-point lead over Lens and an eight-point lead over Marseille, with just four games left in the season. 

Despite not being in his preferred position, Zaïre-Emery put on an impressive performance. After the match, the 17-year-old spoke to Prime Video about the week PSG just had explaining, “In another club, I would never have experienced this! Every week, there’s something new.” 

Showing his maturity and willingness to learn, he also spoke about his time on the pitch: “It’s incredible. I never thought I’d play so much. I think I’m at 17 games. I have few minutes but I come in every match.”

He did admit that it has been a challenge balancing between his training with the first team and his studies for the French baccalaureate tests, which are fast approaching. But the midfielder is committed to performing well in both his academics and football.

“School is not easy. I arrive at training in the morning. In the afternoon, I have to go directly to class, and in the evening to study and perform well. I will take my French baccalaureate in June and July.”

In big matches and in different positions the PSG academy product has proved that he can not only perform but excel. PSG have looked outside of the club over the past few years to solve their issues. However, they may already have the pieces they now need to build for the future.
