first_imgFor its part, Yevgueni Levchenko, Shevchenko’s partner in the national team, predicted that Shechenko will not leave the national team lying down now, but, in any case, in the future it will not combine both charges. “I can’t imagine Shevchenko rejecting Milan. I know that on the part of the Italian team there will be guarantees and large economic investments. I am sure that in the case of receiving a good offer, you will leave the selection after the European Championship. Milan must play at the highest level. Andrei is getting experience to work in a big club, “he told local press. He stressed that the Ukrainian Federation is very happy with the growth of some players under Shevchenko and the tactical varieties that he handled during the qualifying phase, and that he will have “white card” in the future, unless a catastrophe occurs in the European Championship. “I am convinced that Shevchenko is not so dumb as to leave the Ukrainian team now.

It would be a betrayal of the boys, the national team and the country“he pointed out.Regarding the failure of coaches that in the past they were legend in their clubs like Seedorf in Milan, Blokhin in Dinamo or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in Manchester United, alluded to other examples to follow. “There are other examples that say otherwise.

The Ukrainian coach, Andrei Shevchenko, he could train Milan, according to the Ukrainian press today, although only after the European Championship, which the Slavic team has brilliantly classified. “We know your close relationship with Paolo Maldini. But now Shevchenko is focused on preparing the Ukrainian team for the European Championship“said Igor Tsigani, a Ukrainian sports commentator.He stressed that the Italians have already decided that the current coach, Stefano Pioli, will not follow at the end of the season, but the journalist warns that Shevchenko has more than one girlfriend. “That’s why Shevchenko’s candidacy sounds. But I can say that not only Milan thinks of Shevchenko as its coach. It is in the portfolio of several clubs. Milan is one of them. Andrei has done very well with the Ukrainian team“, Explain.last_img read more
