The Sevilla coach admitted he is responsible for setting a better example after being found to be over the limit when driving home from an evening out
Emery, who had been out dining with friends prior to the incident, says it was a momentary lapse in judgement when he opted to drive home and admits he should set a better example as a figure in the public eye.
Taking to his Twitter account, he said: "Last Thursday I was stopped by the local Valencia police and breathalysed. Like any normal citizen on their holidays…
"…the dinner with friends went on longer and instead of taking a taxi, I took the car. I was [tested as] positive, [received an] administrative sanction with a fine and four points [on my licence]…
"Even though it is only a fine, I apologise, because I am aware that drinking and driving is not compatible.
"Public figures have to project exemplary behaviour to our followers. I apologise. [We] Learn from mistakes. Thank you."
Emery later posted a second message to clarify the severity of the police sanction after some reports in Spain suggested he could be punished further.
"Regarding publications in the press, I reiterate that I have been fined, cautioned and received penalty points. I have not been charged of any offence beyond that."
Emery, who has previously coached Almeria, Valencia and Spartak Moscow, lifted the Europa League and guided Sevilla to a fifth-placed finish in the 2013-14 season.
