Following a quite good campaign in the Spanish La Liga 2019/20, Villarreal decided to bring things to the next level and announced a new manager to command them in the next term. The Yellow Submarine just announced Spaniard manager Unai Emery as their new boss.

The former Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain manager will replace Javi Calleja. It came as a surprise, as the former manager managed to qualify Villarreal to the next UEFA Europa League, and has been making progress ahead of the Yellow Submarine.

Maybe it was a great business, as Emery is well-known as “Mr. Europa League” due to his three-successive UEL trophies back in his Sevilla days.

The Spaniard has been with no club since he got axed from the Gunners last year after successive weak performances commanding the Gunners, who went for another Spaniard, Mikel Arteta.

Even though Emery has a lot of experience in the competition, he lost his last attempt, still back in Arsenal times, as the Gunners lost the UEL Final in Baku, Azerbaijan, to London rivals Chelsea.

The Yellow Submarine will Unai Emery’s 5th Spanish team in his career, as he managed Mallorca, Almeria, Valencia, and Sevilla.

The Spaniard will return to his homeland to try to get back to his brightest form in the touchlines, as he’s been quite poor recently. A good example is that he was the PSG boss back in that famous Barcelona 6-1 comeback at the Camp Nou.

On that occasion, Emery’s PSG had beat Barcelona 4-0 at the Parc des Princes and could lose up to three goals at the Catalan home. Even with a huge lead, Emery managed to bottle that, in a great Neymar performance, as the Brazilian led the Catalan side, scoring a late brace, and assisting Sergi Roberto to score a last-gasp winner to knock PSG out.

However, he’s a good name for Villarreal, as the Yellow Submarine is seen as underdogs in virtually every competition they get in, so I wish Emery good luck on his new job!
