 Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday announced the appointment of former Manchester City manager, Roberto Mancini, as manager ahead of their 2017/18 season.

The club wrote on its website, “Zenit football club welcomes Roberto Mancini to Saint Petersburg and wishes him success as manager of the white-and-blues.”

Zenit have signed a three-year deal with the 52-year-old coach, who won three consecutive Italian Serie A titles with Inter Milan in 2006-08 and led Manchester City to the English Premier League title in 2012.

The club said the agreement includes the option of an extension for two more years.

No financial details of the deal were disclosed but rumours have swirled in the Russian press that Mancini will pocket around five million euros a year as Zenit manager.

 Mircea Lucescu was sacked last week after a disappointing third-place league finish saw them miss out on Champions League football next season.
