Unai Emery has signed a new five-year contract with Aston Villa after leading them to the Champions League for the upcoming season.

The 52-year-old Spaniard has transformed Villa since joining from Villarreal in October 2022, when the team was 17th in the Premier League following Steven Gerrard's departure.

In his first season, he guided them to a seventh-place finish, and this season, he achieved fourth place, earning the club their first-ever spot in the UEFA Champions League.

Additionally, the Spaniard led the Villans to the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League in their first European campaign in 13 years.

Speaking to the club's media team, Emery said: “I am very happy to take this step and the responsibility of leading this club.

“Since I came to Villa with Wes and Nassef we found always the best environment and structure to develop a project with the highest ambition.

“All the football structure with Monchi and Damian and the owners, we share the same vision and same goals.

“There’s a great chemistry in Aston Villa. And the element of the fans’ support also makes the difference to feel like home. We are really excited to continue this journey with no limits to our dreams.”
