Villarreal's coach, Unai Emery has broken silence about the news linking him to the Premier League as the new manager of Newcastle United.
It was reported in the early hours of Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021, that the former Arsenal manager is the most favourite person the new owners are looking at to take over the job at the Magpies.
Emery was asked about the news making the round in the media after his club's 2-0 win over Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League. He confirmed that there has been interesting from the Premier League club but there is no official communication between both parties.
He also said, he is focused on his game at the weekend in La Liga.
Newcastle has shown an interest but I have been thinking about the game ( Young Boys ) all day. There is no offer. The offer will have to be via the club. I am focused on Villarreal. No more than that. Preparing for Sunday's game at Villareal.
Emery led Villarreal to win the Europa League last season defeating Manchester United in the final on penalties.
