18-year-old Warren Zaïre-Emery has allegedly become frustrated with his place in the midfield hierarchy for the France national team. Despite his promising talent and potential, Zaïre-Emery finds himself at the bottom of the pecking order amid fierce competition for places - according to information from L’Équipe

Didier Deschamps has opted for a three-man midfield setup at the Euros, featuring experienced players like N’Golo Kanté (33), Antoine Griezmann (33), and Adrien Rabiot (29), who is likely filling in for Aurélien Tchouaméni (24) as the Real Madrid star recovers from injury. Beyond this trio, Youssouf Fofana (25) and Eduardo Camavinga (21) are positioned to play supporting roles off the bench, leaving Zaïre-Emery as a last-resort selection.

Zaïre-Emery, a young talent from Paris Saint-Germain, is reportedly seen more as a complementary player within the squad rather than a candidate for significant playing time. This status has allegedly caused frustration for the teenager, who is eager to contribute more actively to the team's efforts.

L’Équipe reports that Zaïre-Emery has let slip his discontent within the camp, expressing a desire to be a more viable option rather than merely making up the numbers for the squad. As the tournament progresses, it remains to be seen if his frustrations will be addressed and if he will get more opportunities to showcase his abilities on the field.
