Shevchenko could make return to Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Andriy Shevchenko is reportedly in contention to be handed a coaching position with former club Chelsea as he works towards achieving his qualifications.

The 36-year-old, who retired from playing only a few months ago, has been doing his coaching course at Chelsea's Cobham training ground and has held talks with Roman Abramovich about re-joining the club, reports the Daily Mail.

The Chelsea owner remains close to Shevchenko from his days at Stamford Bridge and a return to west London could now be on the cards for the former Ukraine international.

If Shevchenko did take up a position with Chelsea, he would be the second ex-Blue currently among the coaching set up alongside Bolo Zenden, who is assisting interim manager Rafael Benitez.

Shevchenko was Chelsea's most expensive signing prior to the acquisition of Fernando Torres, with the Blues paying £30.8 million to sign the striker from AC Milan.

The former Ukraine captain scored 22 goals in 76 appearances for Chelsea, before leaving the club for first club Dynamo Kyiv in 2009.
