Spalletti happy to stay in Russia

3 May 2013 18:13

Zenit St Petersburg coach Luciano Spalletti says he is "very happy" in his current role, despite reports linking him to Milan.

The 54-year-old Italian has been in charge of Zenit since 2009, leading the club to two league titles and a series of other cup successes.

With Milan slipping off the pace in Serie A this season – they sit third, 18 points behind Juventus – speculation over the future of Massimiliano Allegri has been rife.

Spalletti has been linked with the job, but doused the flames in an interview with Mattina Sport.

He said: "I'm very happy in Russia. I don't think I'll be leaving as I'm very attached to the project we have at the club.

"There are already good and young coaches in Italy, whereas I want to respect the contract I have with Zenit."

Spalletti – who previously managed at Sampdoria, Udinese and Roma – is contracted at the Russian club until 2015.

Zenit, who sit second in the Russian Premier League, are three points behind leaders CSKA Moscow with four matches to play.
