Chelsea´s Ukrainian striker Andriy Shevchenko has revealed how he would like to become part of the growing football revolution in America at some stage of his career.

Shevchenko, who joined the Barclays Premiership club for £30million last summer, has failed to reproduce the kind of form which prompted Chelsea to pay AC Milan a record fee.

But the 30-year-old, who missed Chelsea´s FA Cup final victory over Manchester United on Saturday because of a groin injury, admits to having an ambition to play in the US, saying: "I´d like to play there, actually. Soccer is growing in the US and I´d like to be a part of that."
