AVB's story really is a cautionary tale, there is a lesson to be learned here for everyone.

He followed the call of money right away, after merely one professional year, before actually maturing as a coach and developing a real sense of his job. He thought he could manage the big boys without apparently having the experience, authority and skillset needed.
Now, at *bleep* 36, he's already on his third extremely well paid job, but flopping, failing, and getting fired at each one of them.
It can only go downhill for him now, until he finds some equilibrium of what he can do and where he does it.

The lesson here is, of course, that when you happen to have some kind of short term momentum, do not hesitate to cash in on the hype as fast and forcefully as you can.
Because who knows how the situation would have been had he stayed at Porto and followed his first eye-catching season with a couple of mediocre ones that wouldn't have been so noteworthy, plateauing at his real level.
He might have just remained some B-level manager somewhere and might never have gotten the chance to make millions and millions of € like that again, and he wouldn't have entered the league of 'big name' managers, where simply by virtue of being in there you apparently can bag a few lucrative contracts even while in the process of going down and being found out.
The guy isn't 40, but already set for life. That's how you do it.

tbf AVB's record is ridiculous at Zenit. According to Wikipedia, he's got 17 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses for an 85% win rate.

If it is, I can imagine a fair few of them being quite unhappy right now x)

Might see movement out of Russia if they're being paid in rubles. Wouldn't surprise me if at least the star players had secured their salaries to be paid in euros.
