Andre Villas-Boas to leave Zenit St Petersburg

Andre Villas-Boas has announced he will leave his position as Zenit St Petersburg coach at the end of the season.

The former Chelsea and Tottenham boss, currently serving a six-game ban following an altercation with a match official, led Zenit to the Russian Premier League title last term.

But the Portuguese said he had turned down the offer of a new contract.

"Talking about a contract extension, when we last met with you I said that the club had made me an offer at the end of last season, I have refused and at the end of the season I will leave the club," he said at a press conference ahead of his side's meeting with league leaders CSKA Moscow.

Zenit lie third in the table after seven games of the season, six points behind CSKA.
