​Kanchelskis in favour of Man City boss Pellegrini taking over at Zenit St Petersburg

Current Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini can take Zenit St. Petersburg to another level if he decides to take over at the end of the season, according to former Manchester United winger Andrei Kanchelskis.

Zenit coach Andre Villas-Boas has announced his intention to step down in May and Pellegrini, who is leaving City this year, has been strongly linked with the job in Russian media.

"Pellegrini is a great coach and I am 100 percent sure that at all levels he is a much better manager than Villas-Boas," Kanchelskis said. "I don't know how quickly the Chilean will adapt to Russia, but he can certainly take Zenit to a higher level."
