“My work with Zenit is my top priority,” Villas-Boas stressed.

He was speaking on the back of Saturday’s 2-1 win at Anzhi Makhachkala which kept Zenit in a one-point lead over Lokomotiv Moscow at the top of the table.

“It was a very difficult but also a very important match for us,” he reflected.

“It’s a very significant win for us as we managed to maintain our lead.

“Now, with few matches left we have no choice but to treat each one of our remaining games as a final.”

The success over Anzhi was Zenit’s fifth consecutive win since Villas-Boas arrived in March.
