‘It is with great pride that I agreed to become the Paris-Saint Germain coach,’ said Unai Emery.
‘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 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 went on to praise Emery, insisting that he will bring quality and experience to the club.
‘I am very happy to welcome Unai Emery as the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain,’ said Al-Khelaïfi.
‘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.’
Emery has also coached the likes of Spanish side’s Lorca Deportiva, Almeria, Valencia and Russian club Spartak Moscow, before joining Sevilla in 2013.
