Villarreal coach Unai Emery has become one of the names targeted by Newcastle United after Steve Bruce was sacked after the Magpies were acquired by new owners.
The 50-year-old coach was also aware he was in demand by Newcastle, and claimed he could have left the Yellow Submarine, Villarreal’s nickname.
“The only thing that’s certain is that they showed interest in me. I don’t have more important news than that,” Emery told Movistar.
“There is no offer. If there is, it will definitely go through the club. I am focused, I cannot say that I will leave. If this happens, then I will talk to the president about it. de Villarreal, Fernando Roig, “said the Spaniard.
The English Premier League itself is no stranger to Emery. He had managed Arsenal during the 2018-2019 season before being finally sacked in November 2019.
“I will respect the team and the club, I will consult them first. I do not open or close doors, I do not say no to their best interests,” Emery said.
“I will discuss this with Fernando and the club. I cannot say anything more. I am focusing on where I am now,” he added. (Goal / OL-15)
