Emery thrilled to embark on the next chapter with Villa: Signs lucrative five-year contract

Unai Emery has inked a fresh five-year deal with Aston Villa, locking him in until 2029 post guiding the team to the Champions League last season.

The Spanish manager, with three years remaining on his current contract, has committed to Villa Park for an extended term.

When Emery took over from Steven Gerrard in November 2022, Villa sat 17th in the Premier League, but he steered them to a seventh-place finish.

Under his leadership, Villa finished fourth in the 2023-24 season, securing a spot in Europe’s premier club competition after a 41-year hiatus.

Villa’s Europa Conference League semi-final run, ending in a loss to Olympiacos, also contributed to Emery’s decision to extend his tenure.

Excited about the team’s progress, Emery expressed his happiness in continuing his journey with the support of Villa’s passionate fans.

Chairman Nassef Sawiris echoed the positivity, praising Emery for being the cornerstone of Villa’s special project and looking forward to the future under his guidance.
