Aston Villa Head Coach Unai Emery Signs New Five-Year Contract

  • Unai Emery has signed a new five-year contract to remain as Aston Villa’s manager until 2029.
  • This contract extension comes after Emery led Villa to a 4th place finish in the Premier League, securing the club’s first-ever Champions League qualification.
  • Emery expressed his delight in taking on this new responsibility, stating that he and the club’s owners share the same vision and goals for the club’s future.

Newsypeople- Aston Villa has officially announced that Unai Emery, their head coach, recently agreed to a fresh deal that will tie him to the club for five more years up to 2029. This comes as a reward for the Spaniard having secured a fourth-spot finish in last season’s English Premier League – a position that saw them qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 1983.

Emery took charge of the team when they were only three points clear of the drop zone back in October 2022. However, he has managed to turn things around as they finished seventh in 2022/23 and consequently earned themselves a place in Europe after 13 years out. Their title challenge this campaign lasted until Christmas before petering due to fatigue brought about by participation in the Europa Conference League where they were knocked out at the semi-final stage by Olympiacos.

Speaking about his delight at penning down this new contract, the 50-year-old said that he is thrilled about extending his stay at such an ambitious club. He also mentioned that what made him do so was mainly because everything around him has been great since he joined. For instance, he praised the support accorded by the owners – Wes Edens and Nasef Sawiris among others – as well as harmony among staff members which has made him feel at home more than ever before.

Chairman Nasef Sawiris expressed his happiness regarding the extension of this partnership deal by indicating that they are building something special with ‘Professor’ Emery’s philosophy deeply embedded into every department within our organization. He further stated while celebrating their upcoming 150th anniversary next year; there is much anticipation ahead especially now that Unai will continue leading this great team forward.

Unai Emery is no stranger to success having won the UEFA Europa League four times with Sevilla and Villarreal respectively besides clinching the 2017/2018 French Ligue 1 title at Paris Saint-Germain where he spent two seasons only being sacked in his second year despite leading them both campaigns before taking charge of Arsenal from 2018/19 onwards.

The decision to bring him here has been pivotal considering how far we have come since then in terms of on-field performance coupled with a return to top-flight European competition.

The latest entrustment contract displays the effect Emery had on Villa and depicts the club’s desire to keep rising. Villa enthusiasts have something to smile about following the extension of Emery’s stay until 2029; this means more wins in the future and perhaps an attempt at challenging for honors in Europe or even winning the EPL.
