Sevilla President Jose Castro says Coach Unai Emery is staying with the Andalusians and will sign a new contract on Tuesday.
Under the Basque tactician’s guidance, the Rojiblancos won the Europa League and finished fifth in La Liga this season.
His exploits attracted the attention of Milan, who seem set to sack current Coach Clarence Seedorf, and Emery has been widely reported as the club’s number one choice to replace him.
However, speaking to Spanish media this afternoon, the Sevilla chief revealed that the 42-year-old will commit his immediate future to his current club in the next few days.
“During the last few days there has been a lot of talk about the interest of a certain club for our Coach, Unai Emery,” Castro told reporters.
“Clearly, the good work of the team has not passed unnoticed. But on Tuesday the Coach will sign a renewal. I am being clear and so is he.
“There really is no reason to think that things won’t proceed how we want them to. The contract he will sign will keep him with us for at least another season, in which we hope to consolidate and improve.”
