Warren Zaïre-Emery Surpasses Ex-Arsenal Player in Impressive Champions League Stat

The mainstream football media world got an introduction to Warren Zaïre-Emery after Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 UEFA Champions League win over AC Milan on Wednesday at the Parc des Princes. 

Zaïre-Emery recorded two assists in the victory and had many double-checking that he’s indeed 17 years old. Furthermore, the Frenchman made Champions League history, surpassing a former Arsenal player.

OptaJean pointed out on Twitter that Zaïre-Emery is the youngest player on record since the 2003-04 season to register two assists in the Champions League (17 years and 231 days), topping Theo Walcott (17 years and 250 days).

PSG is attempting to secure Zaïre-Emery to a long-term contract as his current deal expires in June 2025. Additionally, other European clubs have their eyes on the teenager. Reports suggest that Bayern Munich and Manchester City could push for him to leave as a free agent.

Nonetheless, the Ligue 1 giants should pull out all the stops to ensure that he doesn’t leave Paris, and PSG sees him as one of the centerpieces of this project under new manager Luis Enrique.
