Unai Emery, from Guipuzcoa, was presented as a replacement for José Miguel González, Míchel, on 15 January 2013, remaining at the club until the end of the 2015/16 season.
In the summer of 2013, Emery was given the difficult challenge of returning Sevilla to the top of the table with a practically new team that had lost its main stars such as Jesús Navas, Álvaro Negredo, Kondogbia and Gary Medel, among others, during the summer. The Basque coach, after a difficult start, managed to successfully guide the revamped squad he was given and led the team to a fifth-place finish and the 2014 UEFA Europa League championship. In the two subsequent seasons, despite multiple changes to the squad, he kept Sevilla on top and won two more UEFA Europa League titles - 2015 and 2016 - as well as playing in three European Super Cup finals and a Copa del Rey final against FC Barcelona in May 2016, which they lost in extra time.
Under him, in 14/15 Sevilla FC achieved their best-ever league points tally at the time (76 points), which, however, was only good enough to finish fifth. With 106 victories to his name, Unai Emery is the coach with the most wins in domestic and international competition.
