Villarreal 2-0 Young Boys: Unai Emery leads side to victory amid Newcastle links

Last update on. From the section Champions League
Unai Emery was in charge for Arsenal for 18 months before being fired in November 2019.

Villarreal tied Manchester United at points in their Champions League group, beating Young Boys to win what could have been Unai's last match as manager.

Emery is being linked to Newcastle and could be in charge of Saturday's Premier League match against Brighton.

His team, which won the Europa League in May, beating Manchester United on penalties to win, has won two of the four Champions League group games.

They are second to United at the table.

The hosts took a lead in the first half thanks to Etienne Capoue, before Young Boys' Christian Fassnacht saw a goal disallowed by the video assistant referee.

Arnaut Danjuma, a former Bournemouth winger, lost 2-0 to Villarreal. However, the Spanish side remains in second place after Cristiano Ronaldo's late equaliser from Italy.

Emery answered a question about a possible move to Newcastle in his post-match conference. He said he had received interest, but not an offer.

He said, "If there's something more concrete, I will talk to the president but for now I am working with Villarreal."
