Sheva Heads Back to Milan

ShevaImpact on EPL? None.

Andriy Shevchenko is one of the bigger disappointments in recent memory. His signing from AC Milan in 2006 (essential in exchange for Hernan Crespo) was supposed to usher in an unprecedented wave of scoring for Chelsea. He was to team with Didier Drogba to form the most potent front line of any English side. Instead, Sheva scored just nine goals in two seasons in London and spent large periods of time on the bench.

I don’t know if he’ll end up making a big difference back with AC Milan. He’s now 31 and it’s been some time since he’s been up to the form that made him the European Footballer of the Year in 2004. If nothing else he’ll be another massive name on the roster for Milan, one that already includes Kaka, Ronaldinho, Gianluca Zambrotta, Andrea Pirlo and Paolo Maldini.
