Emery: ‘I am proud to take Villarreal to another European semifinal’

Villarreal coach Unai Emery said after qualifying for the semi-finals of the Europa League that he is proud to have led the club to a new semi-final in European competitions, although at this moment he is not considering anything other than enjoying what he has achieved.

“The team already has experience and we have the option of breaking that situation if we did not reach the final. We want to live it and enjoy it a lot. I think it is something that is being transmitted in every game,” he added after the victory against Dinamo de Zagreb.

“We have had to give our best against an opponent who has always stood up. Now we hope to do the same with Arsenal, ”he continued after recalling that he has faced former teams on many occasions and now only thinks about the opportunity to take a big step.

“Villarreal today continued what we did there, we wanted to be patient and deactivate them. We have not let them play their game and not lose easy balls. We have come out to win and the two goals certify it. In the second half we had a couple of mistakes, we were able to sentence and his goal has complicated us a bit ”, he analyzed.
