Almeria coach Emery favourite for Atletico Madrid job

Almeria coach Unai Emery is favourite to succeed Javier Aguirre at Atletico Madrid.

AS says Atletico's disappointing 3-1 defeat at home to Real Betis has left Aguirre scrambling to hold onto his job, despite the club remaining in the Champions League places.

Just 36, Emery has emerged as Spain's brightest coaching prospect and has so far resisted putting pen to paper on a new two-year contract tabled by Almeria last month.

Apart from Atletico, Valencia and Real Betis are also chasing Emery's signature.
