Andriy Shevchenko is one of the most brilliant football players known in history. His position for the Dynamo club (Kyiv) was a striker, and later, he started his managerial career in the same kind of sport. So, if you are willing to learn more, let’s begin!
So, everything began when he was noticed by one of the Dynamo’s representatives within a youth tournament in 1986. This led to Shevchenko’s appearance in the club the beginning of which was quite promising. In four years, he became a member of the team and took part in the Ian Rush Cup tournament.
However, the real start of his career was when he turned 16. For instance, in the season of 1993-1994, he was given the title of the top goal scorer.
A switch to Milan
This took place in 1999. Shevchenko joined the club for an incredible (at that time) transfer fee. As a participant of this Italian club, Shevchenko managed to score 24 goals for 32 matches which was a great result (besides, it was the best one in Serie A).
Shevchenko’s results remained great in the latter games and sports events too. Accordingly, in the 2004-2005 season his achievement equaled 17 goals despite the fact that he had an injury before that.
A victory in the Champions League
So, speaking of this one, the winning penalty was performed by Shevchenko in 2003. At that time, the UEFA Champions League was held. The victory was against Juventus.
This result will be remembered by the spectators of that game for a long time. However, his achievements also included winning in the Cups and Leagues not only of this scale but also in England, Italy, and Ukraine.
A transfer to London’s Chelsea
Well, after such great results, in 2005 there was a heated gossip about exchanging a striker named Crespo for Shevchenko. Therefore, the player was given a contract for six years in this club and left Milan in 2006 (by the way, the fee again was crazy).
Accordingly, his first appearance with this club took place on August 13th, 2006 when Chelsea (if you are interested in games of certain clubs you are free to place a bet using the 4raBet app) played as a part of FA Community Shield. Within the FA, he managed to score his 57th goal which was just awesome.
His career as a coach in the national team of Ukraine
It is curious that in November 2012 (when he was suggested to become the main coach of Ukraine’s national team) he refused. So, from the period from February to July of 2016, he was an assistant manager there.
After this, he was given a position of manager. One of the most awesome results of his managerial career was in 2020 when thanks to him, Ukraine became a participant in the UEFA Euro quarter-finals for the first time for the whole period of its playing.
Finally, Shevchenko became the head coach of Genoa which later also gave some great results.
All in all, Shevchenko is really one of the football players who will be forever remembered for his outstanding achievements (including getting the Ballon d’Or or Golden Ball award in 2004) in this kind of sport.
