    Aston Villa Hires Monchi as Head of Football Operations from Sevilla

    Aston Villa Appoints Monchi as President of Football Operations

    In a surprise move, Aston Villa has announced the appointment of Monchi as their new president of football operations. The Spanish sporting director had previously worked with Unai Emery at Sevilla and helped them win three Europa League titles during his tenure.

    Monchi’s arrival follows the departure of Christian Purslow, who stepped down from his role as chief executive on Monday. As part of this new position, Monchi will be responsible for all football-related matters within the club.

    “I am excited to work alongside one of the best managers in football, Unai Emery,” said Monchi about reuniting with his former colleague. “Together we can achieve great things for this club.”

    During his time at Sevilla, Monchi was instrumental in transforming them into one of Europe’s most successful clubs. He won seven Europa League titles and two Copa del Rey trophies before moving to Roma between 2017 and 2019.

    The partnership between Emery and Monchi proved fruitful during their time together at Sevilla and led many fans to speculate that they could replicate their success again at Aston Villa.

    The appointment of Monchi to this new position is yet another sign that Aston Villa is serious about building a world-class team. With Emery at the helm, and now Monchi overseeing football operations, there are high hopes for what this partnership can achieve.

    Looking Ahead

    Aston Villa’s qualification for next season’s Europa Conference League has given them renewed hope of further success in the future. The club finished seventh in the Premier League last season and will be keen to build on that momentum going forward.

    With Monchi now joining the ranks, there is a sense of excitement among fans as they look ahead to what promises to be an exciting time for Aston Villa Football Club.
