Aston Villa have underlined their commitment to new boss Unai Emery by handing him the longest managerial contract in the club’s history.

Emery was confirmed as the Villans new boss last week, although he is yet to officially start the job yet as he awaits his work visa.

Aston Villa pushed the boat out to get the former Arsenal boss, paying £5.2m in compensation to release him from his deal at Villarreal and a bumper pay deal.
