Special envoy to Nice
End of rally for Warren Zaire-Emery. Hit in the ankle on Saturday evening when he had just scored his first goal for his first selection for the French team against Gibraltar (14-0), the young midfielder, aged 17, leaves this Sunday morning the vice -world champions. If the MRI did not reveal a fracture, which is reassuring, the sprain is real. “WZE” is expected to carry out additional examinations upon its return to the capital. In anticipation of the match against Greece on Tuesday in Athens, the Blues remain in Nice this Sunday.
If he showed nothing in terms of fear and annoyance on Saturday evening following the far too clumsy tackle by Santos (16th), after having been taken care of immediately by the Blues medical staff, Zaire-Emery passed the first exams on the Côte d'Azur. No detail was left unprepared by the selection medical unit. As L'Equipe advances, information that we confirm, unless expressly reinstated, the midfielder of the France team and PSG will no longer play in 2023.

Bad news for his club, which needed its best element in the midfield for the last two Champions League matches against Newcastle and Dortmund. Luis Enrique will have to do without. For the selection, Didier Deschamps awaits his new phenomenon next March, the date of the first gathering in 2024, a year of all the challenges for Zaire-Emery between the Euro, the Olympics and the baccalaureate.
