After four seasons, is Unai Emery’s time at Valencia coming to an end?
Valencia were defeated 2-1 at the Mestalla on Sunday by Sevilla to continue their poor run of form in 2012 in the Primera Liga. Since returning from the winter break, Valencia have only won one game out of the eight games they have played in 2012.
They have lost three games and drawn four which has led to many Valencia fans questioning the ability of Coach Unai Emery and some are calling for change at the club and a new Coach.
Unai Emery has been in charge for four years at the Mestalla and he has successfully guided the club to two 3rd placed finishes, despite the sales of very high profile players.
But it looks as if his time is slowly coming to an end at the club and the team looks to be in need of a new direction and new ideas. Emery’s record against the big clubs is pretty poor and this is something which has disappointed the club’s board and fans.
Also, the club’s disappointing early exit from the Champions League this season has led to many fans questioning whether Emery can guide the club to where it deserves to be?
SuperDeporte today drew up a shortlist of potential managers who could replace Unai Emery at Valencia, if the club decide to part ways with the Spaniard.
The four names mentioned were, Mauricio Pochettino, Laurent Blanc, Didier Deschamps and Luis Milla.
They conducted a survey with the Valencia fans and Mauricio Pochettino was the overwhelming favourite with 47% of the votes and Didier Deschamps was 2nd with 31% of the votes.
After four seasons at Valencia, is it finally time for the club to say adios to Unai Emery? Or will the young tactician be given another year to prove he can lead this team to good things?
