Prince William thanks Unai Emery after Champions League qualification

Prince William, a big Aston Villa fan, posted a message on X to celebrate Aston Villa’s qualification for the Champions League on Tuesday. He took the opportunity to thank Unai Emery.

The party without playing. Aston Villa validated their ticket for the next Champions League on Tuesday, thanks to Tottenham’s defeat against Manchester (0-2) in a late match on the 34th day of the Premier League. The Villans, who are five points ahead of Spurs (5th), are guaranteed to finish fourth before the last match of the season at Crystal Palace on Sunday. And this great return to the most prestigious club competition was celebrated at the highest summit of the British monarchy.

Prince William, son of King Charles III and a big Aston Villa fan, posted a celebratory message on his official X (formerly Twitter) account to welcome this great news and thank the Spanish coach, Unai Emery. “We are in the Champions League,” he exclaimed. “A historic season and an incredible achievement. Thanks to Unai, the whole team and everyone at Aston Villa. Looking forward to next season.” A message signed “W”.

The Prince of Wales regularly attends Birmingham club meetings. He made his first public appearance since the announcement of the cancer of his wife, Princess Kate, on April 11 during the Conference League quarter-final against Lille (2-1) in the company of his eldest son George. He was also present during the semi-final first leg lost against Olympiacos (2-4) on May 2.

In 2015, he explained to Gary Lineker on the BBC why he supported Villa. “A long time ago, at school, I got into football. All my friends were Chelsea or Manchester United fans, and I didn’t really want to follow the run-of-the-mill team. I wanted to have a team more middle-of-the-road that could give me more of an emotional roller coaster moment Aston Villa has always had a great story,” he said.

Aston Villa will participate in the Champions League for the third time in its history and 41 years after its last presence. The club even won the competition in its first appearance during the 1981-1982 season, before failing in the quarter-finals the following season.
