Andriy SHEVCHENKO (#7)

A fast, hardworking, energetic, opportunistic, and prolific goalscorer, Shevchenko was usually deployed as a centre-forward, although he was capable of attacking from the left wing as well, a position which he occupied upon his return to Kiev; he was also effective from set-pieces and penalties. A strong and physical striker with an eye for goal, he was primarily known for his excellent positional sense and his powerful and accurate shot, although he also possessed good technique and aerial ability, and was capable of playing off of his team-mates.

Andriy Shevchenko thinks Carlos Bacca can be 'essential' for Milan: 'But he must learn to work for the team'.

The Colombian seemed set to leave the Rossoneri this summer, but his dazzling start to the season, inclusive of a hat-trick against Torino, suggests he may end up staying put.

“It's quite the advantage for a club to have a striker who can resolve matches for you,” said Shevchenko, in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport. “After a few off seasons there's still a lot to be rebuilt, and having someone in your squad who scores easily can be essential for a Coach.

“But Bacca has to do more, read collective situations better, improve in his teamwork. This is the only way that he can enjoy another leap ahead in quality.

“Anyway, he's a striker I like a lot, and I appreciated him in the past season too. He's good at attacking spaces, strong in the box and he has an instinct for the goal. He's fast and strong.”

Bacca may have trouble dealing with the responsibility, if all of Milan's attack has to stand on his shoulders.

“I don't know, maybe nowadays wearing the Milan shirt is less burdensome than in the past. It used to be that you joined a team full of champions who were playing for many titles, so maybe you could be a bit intimidated.

“Now that's no longer the case, although rebuilding and restarting is a tough business, for the strikers no less than for every other player. Bacca came from Spain last year and he was already a mature player.

“Comparisons with other strikers? He must win before he can be compared to anyone. It's early yet, and these associations are always a bit annoying.

“Bacca still lacks continuity. His qualities are good and he started off the season well with a new Coach, but continuity is a necessary thing if you want to do well in football, along with an ability to help the team.”

Finally, the current Coach of the Ukraine national side was asked what he thought about Milan's new Chinese ownership.

“I don't think anything. Like everyone else, I'm waiting to see what's going to happen. Berlusconi was the heart of the club for many years, and the symbol of a successful style of football.

“I'm curious to see what's going to happen in the next few seasons, as is anyone who loves Milan.”

Sheva: ‘Milan? Maybe one day…’

Ukraine Coach Andriy Shevchenko confirms he could take over at Milan one day as they’ll “always remain in my heart”.

The former striker had two spells with the Rossoneri during his playing career, scoring 175 goals in 322 games.

Having moved into Coaching, could he return to sit on the bench at San Siro one day?

“Now I’m only focused on Ukraine,” Shevchenko told Corriere dello Sport.

“In the future we’ll see. Certainly Milan will always remain in my heart.”

The 40-year-old was also asked about the current Diavolo side, led by Vincenzo Montella.

“The last few results haven’t been great, apart from the win with nine-men against Bologna, but it’s not appropriate to start putting people on trial, because there will be difficult moments in a season.

“Milan had started the season really strongly so it was inevitable that there would be a decline.

“Monday’s game [with Lazio] was a more important point for the team than for the table, because it gave consistency to the thrilling win over Bologna and means they didn’t lose contact with the European places.

“When you have so many players out and you aren’t in great form, some draws can mean as much as a win.

“Montella? Vincenzo was a great striker and now he’s a great Coach and a great man. In my opinion he’s doing something exceptional, because he’s forged a united group with a good style of play.

“Milan are back at high levels with him, even if they’re yet to win something [other than the Supercoppa].”

Shevchenko was also asked about the Champions League, and believes Juventus are among the contenders to win it.

“There are six or seven teams which have a chance of winning, including Juventus.

“Compared to last year they’ve grown both in terms of the depth and the quality of the squad. When you have good alternatives you can rotate with less worry and keep up a high level of performance.

“Will they win the Scudetto? Definitely, because they have the best team and an intelligent Coach like [Max] Allegri.

“Even now that the Champions League is getting underway again, you’ll see their performance won’t drop in the League.”

Why did they choose away goal when they could've gone for scudetto decider?

HBD!
