Emery: Farewell Sevilla

Unai Emery, the coach responsible for Sevilla's remarkable Europa League run of victories, has penned farewell letter to the club as he moves on to PSG.

On the eve of his official departure for his new career with the French champions, the 44-year-old has written a sincere letter of thanks to his fans.

"Every morning I wake up thanking Sevilla FC for three-and-a-half years, and the great moments we have lived together," he wrote.

"I arrived at a difficult time for the club after two years without being in Europe, and I was very clear, Sevilla was my challenge.

"When my staff and I arrived in Seville in January 2013, I made a pact with president: I promised to bring the Champions League to Sevilla FC while he insisted I was supposed to play finals and win titles. 

"Today, we hear the anthem of the Champions League at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for two consecutive seasons. And, in three and a half years we have reached eight finals and won three titles.

"I have only words of gratitude for the years of shared joys. Seasons in which our performance in an increasingly disputed La Liga has allowed us to live unforgettable moments in Europe.

"Three consecutive Europa Leagues that put the Sevilla FC and their fans as the kings of this competition. On top of that my greatest satisfaction was seeing players grow for the benefit of the club and themselves.

"It is difficult to close such a beautiful relationship, but I wanted to do it in the most respectful and clear manner with all the Sevillismo, while only asking respect for me.

"Thanks to the club, all employees, fans and especially the players for their great job involvement."
