Shev: Milan must look forward

Andriy Shevchenko has called on Milan to start looking forward, now that this Serie A season can be consigned to history.

The Rossoneri finished a disappointing campaign in eighth place and missed out on Europa League qualification on the final matchday yesterday.

Speaking to Milan Channel at the launch of the club’s new Casa Milan base, the Ukrainian was however convinced the San Siro giants can turn things around.

“It’s nice to come back to Milan,” Shevchenko said. “This new base is great. I had some excellent years here in this city.

“The team didn’t have a great season but now it’s finished. The club needs to look forward and I am sure that Galliani and the President will do special things.

“I hope that Milan can become one of the big players in Italy and in Europe again.

“I’ve seen Kaka reborn, it’s been difficult even for him this season but Ricky has played very well. We fans hope that he stays.

“The club will decide soon about Seedorf. I think that it’s always difficult for a Coach at the beginning but Clarance has done everything possible and he has done well.

“In some ways he has done extremely well. Milan is my home, we will see when I will be able to return.”
