Shevchenko: 'I want Milan job'

Milan legend Andriy Shevchenko has confirmed that ‘one of my objectives is to return to the Rossoneri as a coach’.

Shevchenko is Milan’s most successful striker of the past 25 years, scoring 175 goals across two spells and winning a Champions League between 1999 and 2009.

The 43-year-old has been Ukraine’s CT since 2016, recently leading them to qualification for Euro 2020, but he harbours hopes of managing the Diavolo one day.

“Right now, the most important thing is to try to finish this season,” he told

“Every player has to give their all to finish the season well. After that, we’ll see what happens next and what future Milan will have.

“I want to return to Milan as their coach one day. Milan will always be in my heart, I have great affection for their fans.

“Let’s see when and if it will happen, but one of my objectives is to return to the Rossoneri as a coach.

“For now, I’m only thinking about Ukraine. I’m focused on just the national team.”

Finally, he had a piece of advice for the Rossoneri’s current crop.

“I tell them to always give their best in training and during games. That way, they’ll have the respect of the fans.”
