Unai Emery signs new deal
Unai Emery has signed a two-year contract extension with Europa League winners Sevilla.
Emery's existing deal was due to expire on June 30 but he is now committed to the club until 2016. He took charge in January 2013 and led the club to Europa League qualification by default due to the ineligibility of other La Liga teams, an opportunity maximised as Sevilla beat Benfica 4-2 on penalties in the final earlier this month. Sevilla then finished fifth in the league this season.
Speaking to SFC Radio after the deal was completed, Emery said: "We always had the idea of continuing in the job and with a project which is established through sustained growth and a demonstration of trust between all parties.''
This season's Europa League success put the club ahead of schedule in terms of Emery's original targets, but he said this will not change his approach.
"We've won a title which advances our position but we need not change,'' he added. "We need to sustain our performances and strive to find areas of growth.''
