The Chelsea and Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko has finally ended his miserable career at Stamford Bridge and rejoined the club where he made his name, Dynamo Kiev.
Carlo Ancelotti had a chat with Shevchenko and told him that he was unlikely to get much playing time at the Bridge, and with the Ukraine still in with a chance of qualifying for the World Cup Finals next summer, he wanted to play regularly so as not to lose his place in the national team.
He will be installed as Dynamo’s captain, and is revered by the fans as a local hero. Shevchenko played for AC Milan under Ancelotti last season, but after only playing 15 games, he didn’t expect to get even that amount of starts at Chelsea.
It has been calculated the each goal he scored in his time at Chelsea has cost the club over £4m, and despite costing the club a record £32m he has been allowed to move for free.
