Emery named PSG coach

Paris Saint-Germain have appointed Unai Emery as their new manager.

The Spanish coach left Sevilla after guiding the La Liga club to a third successive victory in the Europa League and has signed a two-year deal to take over the Ligue 1 side.

Laurent Blanc won 11 trophies during his three years with the French club, including three successive Ligue 1 titles, but his failure to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League proved to be his undoing.

"Paris Saint-Germain is happy to announce the arrival of Unai Emery as the new coach of the club’s first team. The Spanish technician has signed a two-year contract with the club. His contract includes an option for an additional season," a statement from the club read.

Commenting on his appointment, Emery said: “It is with great pride that I agreed to become the Paris-Saint Germain coach. The club has become one of the biggest in Europe over the past few seasons and I am both happy and honoured to be able to help realise its great ambitions. I am eager to meet up with my new players as well as the people who work tirelessly every day to help the club grow. I know that an immense fervour exists around the Paris Saint-Germain and I will be giving my best to ensure its millions of fans have a great deal to cheer about.”

PSG chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaïfi added: “I am very happy to welcome Unai Emery as the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain. Unai will bring to the Club all his experience, his passion and his strong management skills and human qualities. He has a proven talent to get the most out of a team. I am convinced that our fans will love the spectacular style of football our team will play with Unai.”
