Tuesday 18 March 2014

Former Chelsea and Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has returned to management, signing a two-year contract with Russian club Zenit St. Petersburg, the Independent has reported.

A statement on the club website read: "Zenit has agreed terms on a contract with new head coach Andre Villas-Boas. The contract will be signed and Mr. Villas-Boas will be presented in St Petersburg as Zenit's new head coach on March 20. Mr. Villas-Boas' contract begins in March, 2014, and is valid for two seasons."


The 36-year-old has been out of work since being relieved of his duties by Tottenham in December, following a 5-0 home defeat by Liverpool. During his time at White Hart Lane, he guided Spurs to their highest Premier League points tally in 2012-13, and the quarter-finals of the Europa League.


Prior to his disappointing and short-lived spell at Chelsea, he led FC Porto to Europa League glory, and won the Portuguese Superliga without suffering a single defeat. He now joins Zenit, who recently sacked Luciano Spalletti, with the club second in the Russian league, three points behind leaders Lokomotiv Moscow.


While Zenit take on Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie on Wednesday, Villas-Boas’ first game in charge will be Monday’s game against Krylya


Sovetov.
