This was announced in a statement on the club’s website.

Unai Emery has managed top-level clubs such as Paris Saint-German and Arsenal FC. Furthermore, he also knows LaLiga perfectly, after two successful spells at FC and Valencia CF.

The 48-year-old Spaniard started his sporting career at Lorca Deportiva, managing to get them promoted to Segunda División. After his first managerial experience, he moved to UD Almería, who he also got promoted. This time, it was to the top flight of Spanish football.

In the 2007/08 season, Emery arrived at Valencia CF, the club he managed for four seasons. On the bench at Mestalla, the Basque coach finished third in LaLiga on a total of three occasions, each of which saw Los Che qualify for the UEFA Champions League the following season.

After a brief spell at Spartak Moscow, Emery returned to Spain in 2013 to take the reins at Sevilla. In the Andalusian club, he made history, winning three consecutive UEFA Europa League.

In recent seasons, the Basque manager has been in charge of two top-level projects on the European stage. After his successful time at Sevilla, he moved to Paris Saint-Germain, with whom he added to his trophy cabinet, winning a Ligue 1, two Coupes de France, two Coupes de la Ligue and two French Super Cups. In his last role as manager, Emery took charge at Arsenal FC, with whom he was UEFA Europa League runner-up in the 2018/19 campaign.
