£30m flop Andriy Shevchenko could be set for a surprise return to Stamford Bridge but this time as a strikers coach.
The Ukarian striker is set to retire from football after an unsuccessful return to Dynamo Kiev and is looking to move into coaching.
The striker who scored just 9 times for Chelsea is thought to be the first appointment in a new coaching revamp at Chelsea.
Although unsuccessful as a player at the Bridge no one can question Shevchenko’s experience, know-how, or goal scoring record elsewhere meaning as a coach he may well achieve some of the success which he failed to do when playing in London.
Shevchenko has scored 372 goals in a very successful career in which he has won every trophy in the Ukraine, every trophy in Italy, the FA Cup and Carling Cup as well as the Champions League along with numerous personal accolades.
Although a controversial choice we all know how close Shevchenko and Abramovich have been so it’s no surprise Abramovich has asked him, on the other hand I don’t feel the appoint is insane or ridiculous because Shevchenko certainly knows how to score goals even if he couldn’t do it himself in England.
