Andre Villas-Boas has 'lit up' Zenit Saint Petersburg since his appointment as manager of the Russian title chasers, the club's Brazilian striker Hulk claims.
Hulk's hat-trick in Saturday's 4-1 win over FC Krasnodar left Zenit leading the league by one point from Lokomotiv Moscow.
Since Villas-Boas, sacked by Tottenham in December, was appointed last month Zenit have gone on a four-match winning spree.
And Hulk, who has scored seven goals and made five assists in that period, says the credit should go to his former boss at Porto.
