Thierry Henry on Warren Zaire-Emery: He has no limits

Warren Zaire-Emery’s performance for Paris Saint-Germain against AC Milan left former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry without words.

The 17-year-old displayed his skills against AC Milan by contributing two assists in Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 Champions League win. Henry, who also manages France’s under-21 team, talked about the young player’s immense potential after the match.

The way Warren Zaire-Emery is playing, it is normal to run the show at just 17 years old. He was the only one that held his ground at St James’ Park. He’s been magnificent. The sky is the limit. I have never seen a player that young being so mature. Usually, you have youngsters that play as forwards that make the difference. But when you play in midfield for a team like PSG, you need to readjust. It is rare to see such a young player in that position,” Henry said about Warren Zaire-Emery on CBS Sports.

“I gave him the armband because I wanted to see the next thing. I know that physically, he is strong, he can run, he can see a pass, he can stop a counter. I want to know if he can also stop a player by talking. I gave him the armband to know if he could direct the team and talk. That was my way of seeing if he could do that, and trust me, he can. This guy has no limits.”

Warren Zaire-Emery had his debut for PSG in both the Champions League and Ligue 1 last season. While there were rumors of him leaving Paris, PSG decided to keep him, and it’s paying off with some remarkable performances from the 17-year-old.

Zaire-Emery and PSG will play again this weekend as they visit Stade Brestois on Sunday, October 29.
