Aston Villa: Emery returns to the Premier League! (Official) – Soccer

After the dismissal of Steven Gerrard, Aston Villa have their sights set on Unai Emery. The Spanish coach left Villarreal definitively for the Villains who paid his release clause.

Unai Emery leaves Villarreal for Aston Villa.

Three years later, Unai Emery will return to English football. The 50-year-old g coach has now left Villarreal to become the manager of Aston Villa!

Everything is very fast this Monday since at the beginning of the evening, several sources including the daily Marca evoked a serious rapprochement between the two parties.

Emery succeeds Gerrard

It only took two short hours before the confirmation of the Villains who put their hands in their pockets for Steven Gerrard’s successor.

Indeed, the Birmingham club would have paid Emery Villarreal’s release clause. Depending on the sources, we are talking about an estimated amount of 6-7 million euros. The sum is not negligible for a coach who, according to the rumors mentioned for a few days, was not the first choice.

Pochettino and Tuchel would refuse the job

The names of Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel have circulated in particular, but the two other coaches passed by Paris Saint-Germain would have refused the proposal. One would expect the Spaniard to emulate them, having repelled Newcastle’s advances last winter. Not to mention his mixed time in England on the Arsenal bench (2018-2019).

Since then, Emery has significantly improved its image. The technician won the Europa League with Villarreal in 2021, before reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League last season. The new manager of Aston Villa was therefore entitled to a beautiful press release from the yellow submarine despite this sudden departure in the middle of the season.
