LOSC – PSG: Luis Enrique details the new role of Warren Zaire-Emery


By: Manu Tournoux

Aligned in a hybrid role depending on the phases of play of PSG in Lille this Sunday (1-1), at the end of the 16th day of Ligue 1, Warren Zaire-Emery generally satisfied his coach. Present at the microphone of Prime Video, Luis Enrique first returned to this choice: we tried something different to have more control. And I think that was the case for 80 minutes, it was almost perfect, against a great rival. Everything was under control. I’ll have to watch the last 10 minutes again. But it’s very frustrating, assured the Spaniard, referring to the positioning of his young nugget. Sometimes right back when Paris did not have the ball, sometimes midfielder when the capital’s players had the ball, the young 17-year-old player, credited with a 6.5 by our editorial staff, has whatever it takes holds his rank well.

“We managed to do what I wanted. That is to say having a player in the axis with a lot of quality when we had the ball, to provide support, and who continually changes position with Vitinha. This made it possible to generate situations of superiority against a Lille team which defends very well. In these situations, we were able to exploit the spaces. And I think it worked very well. I really enjoyed the match for 80 minutes. When he (Zaire-Emery, editor’s note) did not have the ball, he had to fulfill the function of a right-back”confirmed Luis Enrique at a press conference, also believing that he had seen “the best match of the season from a defensive point of view”.
