Aston Villa Confirm Ex-Arsenal Boss Unai Emery As New Manager

Aston Villa have appointed Unai Emery as their new manager – completing a sensational comeback for the former Arsenal boss.

Emery, 50, succeeds Steven Gerrard – who was sacked by the West Midlands club last Thursday – at Villa Park. It’s his second job in the Premier League after coaching the Gunners between May 2018 and November 2019 – a job which he was dismissed from.

Villa have confirmed the experienced Spaniard will take charge of the team on November 1 once his work permit is given the green light.

The Premier League side have activated Emery’s release clause at Villarreal, which is believed to be around £5.25million. The Villa job will be his ninth in management.
