🇪🇸 BREAKING: Unai Emery turns down Newcastle with official statement

Ever seen a manager turn down a club with an official statement? Newcastle United's managerial target Unai Emery has rejected the newly-rich English Premier League club.

While the move looked like a matter of time before the official announcement, Emery seemingly beat the club to it by making his own official announcement that he is not going to Newcastle upon Tyne.

"No matter how much noise there was yesterday in another country, within the club there was transparency and loyalty with the Roig family and with my staff, which is maximum and for me it is the most important," Unai's note said.

"Villarreal CF is my home and I am 100% committed. Honestly, I am grateful for the interest of a great club, but I am more grateful to be here and that is why I communicated to Fernando Roig my decision to want to continue being part of this project because of the commitment and respect that I perceive from the club and from my players. , which is mutual and reciprocal.

"I want to thank the fans for the support they have always shown me. On Sunday we have a very
important and I hope that together we can achieve victory. See you at the Stadium," 
the brief concluded.
