Shevchenko aims for the Milan bench next season

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. Since they would never forgive him. Andrei is leading a very smart career, without making free promises. I can’t imagine Shevchenko leaving 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. For example, Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid,” he said. Shevchenko, Ballon d’Or in 2004, worked his reputation as a scorer in Dinamo Kiev (1994-1999), where he would return ten years later to retire in 2012.He played in Milan from 1999 to 2006 winning the Serie A and the Champions League, and, after two years at Chelsea, returned with the Rossoneri team in the 2008-09 season. Disciple of the legendary Valeri Lobanovski, he took over the reins of the Ukrainian team in 2016, which he could not take to the World Cup in Russia, but to the European Championship 2020 ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal. 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

NHL notes: Forsberg deadline nearing

first_imgThe closer a decision on Forsberg drags to the Feb. 27 trading deadline, the more it appears that he does not want to be labeled the bad guy. Some teammates predict he will allow the Flyers to make the primary decision. All hail the `Chief’: The Boston Bruins completed the hat trick for John “Chief” Bucyk, giving the Hall of Fame forward a third night in his honor to commemorate his 50th anniversary with the team. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Tuesday that if center Peter Forsberg, an unrestricted free agent this summer, asked to be traded to a Stanley Cup contender or if the Flyers traded him because he wouldn’t commit to re-signing, they had a plan in place. “We can move quickly,” Holmgren told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Let me rephrase that. We’ve done enough (talking). We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. But we would have a decision to make.” center_img The last Bruins captain to skate with the Stanley Cup, Bucyk was given a gold watch by current captain Zdeno Chara before Boston’s game against the Edmonton Oilers. “It’s very exciting. I never thought there was another thing they could do for me,” Bucyk said. “I’ve had two nights already, they had my number retired, I’m in the Hall of Fame and now this.” Bucyk was also honored in 1968, when the team feared he might have to retire because of a back injury. But he stuck around and, along with Bobby Orr, led the Bruins to the 1970 and ’72 Stanley Cup championships. A second night was dedicated to him in 1980, when his No. 9 was retired; a year later, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Sabres’ Connolly slowed by leg injury: Tim Connolly will miss at least a week of workouts because of a leg stress fracture, the latest setback for the Buffalo center who’s missed nine months with concussion-related headaches. Coach Lindy Ruff said tests revealed a broken bone below Connolly’s knee. last_img
