Former Arsenal boss Emery named as new Villarreal coach

Spanish club Villarreal have announced their new head coach, who is the former Arsenal and Sevilla boss "Unai Emery".  His new appointment comes after Javi Calleja was sacked just few days ago.
It is recalled that the 48-year-old Emery was dismissed by Arsenal last November with the Gunners on a seven-match winless streak, their worst run since 1992.
Unai Emery also led Sevilla to three straight Europa League titles from 2014-16 before winning five major trophies with French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
"Villarreal CF has reached an agreement with Unai Emery for the Basque manager to be Yellows head coach for the next three seasons," Villarreal said in a statement.
Villarreal parted ways with former player Calleja this week despite him taking the club to a fifth-placed finish in La Liga.
Influential midfielder Santi Cazorla, who has since joined Qatari side Al-Sadd, also left the Estadio de la Ceramica.
Emery reached the Europa League final last season with Arsenal, losing to London rivals Chelsea.
Villarreal are set to return to Europe's second-tier competition next term.
