Benfica coach Jorge Jesus says Andre Villas-Boas is taking the job at Zenit St Petersburg.

Former Chelsea and Tottenham boss Villas-Boas was linked with Zenit last week after their dismissal of coach Luciano Spalletti.

Jesus said: "I have a terrific relationship with Villas-Boas. We talked yesterday, and I talk to him regularly.

"I do not know if I should say this, but he told me that he goes to Zenit."
