French Champions Paris Saint-Germain have announced that former Sevilla manager Unai Emery will take over the vacant managers role at the club after Laurent Blanc left his position yesterday.
The Spaniard has signed a two-year deal with the Ligue 1 club after he left Sevilla earlier this month, despite leading them to the Europa League title for three consecutive seasons, including last months victory against Liverpool in Basle.
It is with great pride that I accept the challenge of coaching PSG.
This club has become one of the biggest in Europe over recent seasons, and I am happy and honoured to help lead it towards achieving its goals.
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 the Paris Saint-Germain and I will be giving my best to ensure its millions of fans have a great deal to cheer about.
French legend Blanc, left the club after three years in charge, winning three consecutive Ligue 1 titles.
