Roberto Mancini’s future as Zenit St Petersburg boss in doubt just three months into reign

Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is considering throwing in the towel at Zenit St Petersburg after just three months in charge.

The Italian took over at the Russian club in June having previously being out of work since August 2016, when he left Inter Milan by mutual consent.

Mancini has made a bright start to life at Zenit and his side currently sit top of the table after going unbeaten in their first eight games.

But, according to Corriere dello Sport, the 52-year-old is considering stepping down after problems with transfers.

Mancini is desperate to sign a new centre-back, but Zenit have struggled to get numerous deals over the line.

Most recently the Russian side failed to land Valencia defender Aymen Abdennour, who has instead joined Marseille on loan.

This is reportedly the final straw for Mancini and he could well walk out of Zenit in the coming days.
