Aston Villa boss Unai Emery has revealed the need for him to take time and analyse deeply before he takes any key decisions in the summer.


The Villans will be participating in the Champions League for the first time in 42 years after they ensured a finish in the top four at the end of the 2023/24 season.


Taking the pressure of both domestic and European competition in mind, Emery’s side will need to invest in the transfer market to give themselves the edge to be competitive on multiple fronts next season.



Emery though insists that he will not rush things and will take time to analyse deeply over the summer.


Given the demanding nature of the season, the Aston Villa players and Emery himself will take time off to rest and then make preparations for summer recruitment professionally.



On whether he will take time off, Emery told the BBC: “Yes, I need it.


“But I need to analyse deeply, with time, and also to enjoy the rest because the season was really tough.



“We achieved a lot but we demanded a lot of the players, so we have to rest and prepare professionally but also take time on decisions.”


Aston Villa failed to have the perfect end to an otherwise impressive season after being humbled 5-0 by Crystal Palace.
