AC Milan: Shevchenko lays out stall to be San Siro manager

The former Milan striker has discussed the possibility of returning to the rossoneri as manager one day after his stint with the Ukraine national team.

Shevchenko hoping to one day become Milan head coach

Andriy Shevchenko has said he would be interested in a return to AC Milan as the Serie A club's manager. Shevchenko, 43, was a cult hero at San Siro and has been in charge of Ukraine since 2016 in his first senior coaching job.

The former forward played for the likes of Milan and Chelsea during his career, winning a Serie A title and Champions League while at San Siro.

"Milan is always in my heart and one day, when I decide to change, I would love to train them," he said during an Instagram Live chat on Wednesday.

Shevchenko: "We will see what happens"

Milan have struggled in recent seasons, last winning the Serie A title in 2010-11.

They were seventh in the table when this campaign was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic and Shevchenko hopes Milan can improve when the season resumes.

"We must try to finish the season at best at this moment. Everyone will have to give their best to have respect of the fans," he said.

"Then, we will see what will happen and what future the club will have."
