Unai Emery has signed a deal with PSG until June 2018.
Paris Saint-Germain yesterday announced departure of Laurent Blanc after his three year stint at the French club, and have now appointed former Sevilla manager Unai Emery as their new head coach.
The Spaniard, who managed the likes of Spartak Moscow, Valencia and Almeria, left Sevilla after winning the Europa League in each of his three full seasons in charge of the La Liga side.
“It is with great pride that I agreed to become the Paris-Saint Germain coach,” Emery told PSG’s official website.
“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-Khelaifi said: “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.”
