Coach Andre Villas-Boas says he will leave Russian club Zenit St Petersburg at the end of the season.
The Portuguese former Chelsea and Tottenham manager won the league title with Zenit last season in his first full campaign, but then rejected the offer of a contract extension.
Zenit currently lie third in the table after seven games of the new season.
"I have refused a contract extension, and at the end of the season I will leave the club," he said.
Villas-Boas is currently serving a six-game ban for assaulting a match official.
