Andriy Shevchenko's Chelsea Dream...


Andriy Shevchenko, the dashing Ukranian striker, has left Chelsea after spending three unsuccessful years in the club. The man Chelsea bought for a club record 30 million pounds failed to make any impression at the Premier League stage.

When Shevchenko joined the Blues at Stamford Bridge, they had already won two Premier League titles in row. But Chelsea's bid for a third successive premier league title was dealt a blow when their record summer signing only produced four goals during the whole season. His unconvincing performances meant he was not a regular part of the team, and that prompted him to take a leave from Chelsea football club.

Before moving to the London club, Shevchenko had a great time at AC Milan where he scored 127 goals in the 208 appearances he made for the Italian club. He has also represented his home country Ukraine in 79 international matches. That type of success uluded him at the English Premier League.

He now joins Dynamo Kiev, the football club where he started his career, on a two year contract. He has already made his presence felt at Kiev by scoring a goal in the 3-1 win against Metallurg Donetsk.

I've always loved and admired Shevchenko; despite his failure at Chelsea, somehow, I always liked him. Maybe it's a bias but right since the Milan days, I had been stunned by the forward's ability, skill, accuracy and intelligence in the box. He has never really the same after that injury in 2006. If THAT had not happened, i wonder what could have been!
