Andre Villas Boas to be announced as Zenit St Petersburg manager early next week [Sky Italia]
Having been sacked by Spurs earlier this season (what a great decision that now looks like eh!), Andre Villas Boas AKA AVB has been linked with a number of jobs, AC Milan among them, but none had come to fruition.
Now, after a week of talks, the Portuguese technocrat has been chosen by Zenit to take over at the Petersburg club, after they parted company with Spaletti.
Sky Italia and all other relevant Italian sources are now confirming that a deal has been struck between AVB and Zenit, and that he could be unveiled as soon as Monday; early next week at any rate.
If AVB had issues with transfer policy in England, he has a real shock in store when he gets to Russia…
Regardless, one of the world’s richest young men is about to get a whole lot richer.
