PSG wunderkind midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery is set to be sidelined until December's play stoppage after sustaining a medium-severity sprain to his right ankle during his debut with the France senior squad last weekend.

The 17-year-old, who has been sublime featuring in nearly every match for PSG this season, scored in his first appearance for the national team but had to leave the field due to an injury suffered in that same goalscoring play.

In an official statement released on Monday evening, PSG provided details about Zaire-Emery's condition, stating, "Warren Zaïre-Emery has suffered a moderate sprain of his right ankle and will remain under treatment until the winter break.

The young player, who left the national team camp immediately after the game against Gibraltar when he was injured, is expected to undergo treatment in the coming weeks while rehabbing his ankle.

As a result, Zaire-Emery will miss at least the next seven matches for PSG, including pivotal fixtures against AS Monaco, Newcastle, Dortmund, and Lille.

The injury marks a temporary halt to the promising trajectory of WZE, but considering his youth and his energy it should not impact his growth and development for years to come.
