Unai Emery Etxegoien (born 3 November 1971) is a Spanish football manager, currently in charge at La Liga side Villarreal, and former player. He won 3 Europa Leagues with Sevilla.

After a modest playing career spent mostly in Spain's Segunda División, Emery transitioned into coaching after retiring in 2004. He began at Lorca Deportiva, where he achieved promotion to the Segunda División in his first season and was subsequently awarded the Miguel Muñoz Trophy. He then joined Almería, who he led to promotion to La Liga for the first time in the club's history. This earned him a move to La Liga heavyweights Valencia, where he regularly led the team to top-three finishes. After leaving Valencia, he coached Spartak Moscow for six months, before moving to Sevilla in 2013.

At Sevilla, Emery gained plaudits for his style of football, and shrewdness in the transfer market alongside Monchi, the club's director of football. He achieved an unprecedented three consecutive Europa League victories, which earned him a move to French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2016. In his first year managing PSG, he led them to a stylized domestic treble, winning the Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophée des Champions, while finishing second in the year-end tables for Ligue 1. Emery exceeded this in his second season with a domestic quadruple of Ligue 1, the Coupe de France, the Coupe de la Ligue and Trophée des Champions.

After the expiry of his contract with PSG, Emery was appointed head coach of English club Arsenal in May 2018, following the resignation of long-serving Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger, and reached the Europa League final in his first season. Emery was dismissed as head coach in November 2019 after a series of poor results.

On 23 July 2020, Emery returned to management with La Liga side Villarreal, signing a 4 year deal with the club.
