Emery ponders Valencia future
Unai Emery is considering his future at Valencia, according to Superdeporte.
The Basque-born Coach is believed to have informed his agent to analyse and listen to any offers that may come his way as he once again has to endure speculation surrounding his job at the Mestalla.
Emery has been in charge of Los Ché since succeeding Ronald Koeman in 2008, having led previously modest Almería to a first-ever promotion the previous year, but has only had his contract renewed at the last minute before the last two seasons, and even then only for 12 months at a time.
Asked at a Press conference before the shock 2-1 home defeat to Real Zaragoza in midweek if this could be his final season with the club, the 40-year-old intimated ‘it could be’, despite achieving the objective of Champions League football with a squad he has had to rebuild due to the club’s financial difficulties.
Furthermore, Superdeporte maintains that Emery has also had to contend with rumours over the last few months that Valencia - currently third in La Liga behind Real Madrid and Barcelona - were thinking of replacing him, and names such as Didier Deschamps, Mauricio Pochettino and Laurent Blanc have been linked with the post.
However, several Spanish and European clubs are understood to be monitoring his situation and it could well be that Emery decides to leave of his own accord rather than wait for the offer of a new contract.
