Posted on | March 19, 2014 | No Comments

Zenit St Petersburg have confirmed the appointment of Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas. The 36 years old manager who worked with Jose Mourinho at Porto will sign a two years contract with the Russian team.

AVB was without an engagement after his spell with Tottenham in Premier League. AVB had a wonderful debut as he managed to win Portuguese League, Europa League and Portuguese Cup with Porto in one season but failed to live up the expectations with Chelsea and Tottenham.

After the success with Porto he was already named the “New Mourinho” by football specialists.

Villas-Boas will replace Luciano Spalletti who was sacked by Zenit board. Spalletti came at Zenit five years ago.
