Unai Emery signs new contract at Aston Villa until 2029

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — Unai Emery signed a new contract with Aston Villa on Monday that keeps him at the Premier League club until 2029.

Emery took charge in October 2022 with Villa just three points above the relegation zone.

This season, he guided the club to a fourth-place finish and qualification for the Champions League.

“I am very happy to take this step and the responsibility of leading this club," Emery said. “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.”

Villa chairman Nassef Sawiris said the club is “building something special ... with Unai at its core.”
