Shevchenko: 'Milan must target Scudetto'

Andriy Shevchenko warned “with the transfer market they had, Milan must target winning the Scudetto.”

The former Rossoneri hero spoke to Mediaset Premium ahead of this evening’s Champions League draw.

He had been on record in recent weeks as being perplexed by the massive transformation of Vincenzo Montella’s side.

“I simply said that Milan changed 11 players in the squad and inevitably it would take time to form a team. Milan certainly bought some great players and with the transfer market they had, must target winning the Scudetto.

“I don’t know where the market will end up, but I hope it calms down a bit, as the prices have become over the top. At the same time, there are some players who are worth a huge amount.”

Milan finalise their Europa League qualification this evening with a play-off against Shkendija, having won the first leg 6-0, but Juventus, Roma and Napoli are in the Champions League.

“I think the usual sides will go through to the end in the Champions League,” added Sheva.
