Zenit St Petersburg’s coach André Villas-Boas complained that the goal by Lokomotiv Moscow was accidental.
At the post-match press conference, he told reporters the pressures were too high and refused to blame his goalkeeper for the goal.
The game ended in a 1-1 draw setting up a thrilling end to the season of the Russian Premier League with just two rounds to go.
André Villas-Boas was appointed Zenit’s manager after the dismissal of Luciano Spalletti.
Appointed no December 10, 2009, Roma's hero went on to win the Premier League title twice but failed to help the side advance on the international arena.
