Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain have lost star midfielder Warren Zaire Emery to the international break. As a result, their reliance on Lee will be even greater.
The club released an official statement on Jan. 21, announcing that “last weekend’s medical tests on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang revealed a ‘moderate sprain’ in his right ankle,” and that he will “undergo treatment until the end of the year.” Local media outlets cited the announcement as saying that he would not be able to play until next year.
Zaire Emery was injured while playing for France against Gibraltar on April 19.
He started the match and scored his first A-League goal in the 16th minute, but was tackled by opposing defender Ethan Santos in the process and went down before being replaced by Youssouf Fofana.
Born in 2006, Zaye Emery came through the Paris Saint-Germain youth ranks and made his Ligue 1 debut at the age of 16 last season.
This season, he has impressed new coach Luis Enrique and has been a regular in the midfield alongside Manuel Ugarte and Fabian Luis. With two goals and five assists in 16 official games and four goals and three assists in the UEFA Champions League, he has established himself as a mainstay in his second year as a professional, and at just 17 years old. His performances for the club have earned him a call-up to the national team during the international break, with his debut against Gibraltar coming at the age of 17 years and 255 days, making him the third-youngest player to make an appearance for France, behind only Jullien Verbrugghe (16 years and 10 months) and Maurice Gastiger (17 years, 4 months and 5 days).
Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told French outlet Le Parisien: “Xhair-Emerick reminds me of Paul Pogba’s power, but he also has the ability to take the ball away from N’Golo Kante with a silver spoon. “He has a lot of vision and he has the strength to win contests. “He has the vision and the strength to win contests. He’s what we call a box-to-box midfielder in England,” he said.
Paris Saint-Germain will be without Yaya Emery for the remainder of the year, including five Ligue 1 games and two UEFA Champions League group stage matches 아톰카지노 주소.
As a result, Lee will have to step up. Lee has been a mainstay in the team since the Hangzhou Asian Games and the A-Match break last month. He has been used by Enrique as a right-back and central midfielder, among other positions. “He’s a player we can use in different positions,” says Enrique, “not only in midfield but also as a ‘false nine’ inside. He can also play on the wing,” he said, noting his versatility.
Coach Didier Dormy, who played for Paris Saint-Germain as a player, analyzed Paris Saint-Germain’s loss to Newcastle United in the Champions League and argued that they should have used Lee in midfield.
“It’s true that a good midfielder can handle pressure. Whether it’s one-on-one or in the zone, those are the qualities they have. At Paris, the only player who has that quality is Vitinha, the others don’t have that quality. Zaire Emery and Manuel Ugarte have the advantage of recovery. Zaire Emery is also good at breaking through. However, they are currently showing their limitations. Their ability to resist opponent pressure is an area of improvement. Newcastle United and AC Milan used the same tactic. They knew that if they put a lot of pressure on the midfield, it would be hard to come back. “Paris Saint-Germain is a team built to dominate and control the midfield,” he said.
“He’s not afraid to get on the ball. He is a very experienced player who is not afraid to turn around even if there is someone behind him. He has the ability to turn around under pressure. He does it often, not one in ten times, because that’s a quality he has, so he can be useful in the midfield.”
