Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has part company with Zenit St Petersburg by mutual consent. Mancini, who has reportedly been engaging in talks with Italy to take the helm of the first team, is to leave Zenit after their final league game in the 2017/2018 season against Khabarovsk.

Mancini has won a total of 26 trophies in his career, 13 as a player and also 13 as a manager, including three Italian Serie A titles with Inter Milan and the English Premier League title with Manchster City.
