Roberto Mancini is in the frame for the job at Zenit St Petersburg.

Zenit have announced the departure of Dick Advocaat this week and Mancini is among the candidates to succeed the Dutchman.

Out of work since he was sacked by Inter a year ago, Mancio is eager to get back to work and has confirmed he would relish an overseas experience.

There is already an Italian element at Zenit, as they signed Alessandro Rosina from Torino last month.
