Russia’s 2007 champions Zenit St Petersburg have signed midfielder Alessandro Rosina from Italian side Torino, on a four-year deal, the club reported Friday.
No financial details of the deal for 25-year-old Rosina were disclosed.
Zenit’s Dutch manager Dick Advocaat, who has announced his decision to quit at the end of the Russian Premier League season in November, expressed disapproval of the deal.
“Rosina is not the player that Zenit really need,” Advocaat said. “I did everything I could to prevent his signing but all in vain.”
