Andriy Mykolayovych Shevchenko (Ukrainian: Андрій Миколайович Шевченко, Andrij Mykolajovyč Ševčenko; born 29 September 1976) is a Ukrainian professional football striker who currently plays for Dynamo Kyiv and the Ukrainian national team. He is the fourth-highest scorer in the history of European club competition with 62 goals, behind Filippo Inzaghi, Raúl, and Gerd Müller.[1]

Shevchenko's career has been highlighted by many awards, the most prestigious of which were the Ballon d'Or in 2004 (becoming the third Ukrainian, after Oleg Blokhin and Igor Belanov to receive it) and the UEFA Champions League in 2003 with Milan. Along with this, he has won various league and cup titles in Ukraine, Italy, and England. Besides the Golden Ball, Shevchenko was awarded other individual awards.

In his international career, the striker led the Ukraine national football team as captain to the quarterfinals in their first ever FIFA World Cup appearance in 2006.

Contents

Early life

Shevchenko was nine when the Chernobyl nuclear disaster occurred in April 1986. His village was affected by the disaster, and his family was forced to abandon their home and relocate to the coast to escape the after-effects.[2] At an early age, he was a competitive boxer in the LLWI Ukrainian junior league, but eventually he elected to move on to football.

Club career

Dynamo Kyiv

In 1986, Shevchenko failed a dribbling test for entrance to a specialist sports school in Kiev, but happened to catch the eye of a Dynamo Kyiv scout while playing in a youth tournament, and was thus brought to the club. Four years later, Shevchenko was on the Dynamo Kyiv under-14 team for the Ian Rush Cup (now the Welsh Super Cup); he finished as the tournament's top scorer and was awarded a pair of Rush's boots as a prize by the then-Liverpool player.

In 1992-93, Shevchenko was the top scorer for Dynamo-2 with twelve goals, and he made his first appearance in the starting eleven. He won his second league title next season, scoring 6 goals in 20 matches, and scored a hat trick in the first half of a 1997-98 Champions League road match against Barcelona, which Dynamo won 4-0. His nineteen goals in 23 league matches and six goals in ten Champions League matches were followed by 28 total goals in all competitions in 1998-99. He won the domestic league title with Dynamo in each of his five seasons with the club.

Milan

In 1999, Shevchenko joined Milan for a then-record transfer fee of $25 million. He made his Serie A debut on 28 August 1999 in a 2-2 draw with Lecce. He became the first foreign player to win the Serie A scoring title in his debut season, finishing with 24 goals in 32 matches.

Despite netting only five times in 24 matches, Shevchenko became the first Ukrainian-born player to win the Champions League after Milan lifted their sixth trophy in 2002-03. He scored the winning penalty in the shoot out against arch-rivals Juventus in the final, which had ended goalless after extra time. He finished top goalscorer in Serie A (2003–04) for the second time in his career, scoring 24 goals in 32 matches as Milan won the Scudetto for the first time in four years. Shevchenko capped off the year by being named the 2004 European Player of the Year, becoming the third Ukrainian player ever to win the award after Oleg Blokhin and Igor Belanov.

He scored seventeen goals in the 2004–05 season after missing several games with a fractured cheekbone. Shevchenko made Champions League history the following season; on 23 November 2005, he scored all four goals in Milan's 4-0 group-stage drubbing of Fenerbahçe, becoming only the fifth player to accomplish this feat (his company includes Marco van Basten, Simone Inzaghi, Dado Pršo and Ruud van Nistelrooy). Milan eventually lost the tournament when Shevchenko missed the crucial penalty in the final against Liverpool. He scored his last Milan goal in the second leg of the quarterfinals as they eliminated Olympique Lyonnais after a last-minute comeback, but then fell to eventual winners Barcelona in the semifinals, a match where Shevchenko controversially had a last minute equalizer denied by the referee.

On 8 February 2006, he became Milan's second all-time goalscorer, behind Gunnar Nordahl, after netting against Treviso.[3]

Chelsea

Shevchenko with Chelsea

During the summer of 2005, there were persistent reports that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich offered a record sum of €75.2 million and striker Hernán Crespo to Milan in exchange for Shevchenko.[4] Milan refused the monetary offer but took Crespo on loan. Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon was quoted as saying, "I think Shevchenko is the type of player we would like. At the end of the day to improve what we have got, it has to be a great player and Shevchenko certainly comes into that class."[5] Shevchenko cited that the persistence of Abramovich was a key factor in his move.[6]

On 28 May 2006, Shevchenko left Milan for Chelsea for £30.8 million, topping Michael Essien's transfer fee from the previous year and also breaking the record for a player signed by an English club.[7] He received the number seven shirt, as Chelsea coach José Mourinho said that Shevchenko could continue wearing it.[8]

Shevchenko on Tour with Chelsea 2007.

Shevchenko made his debut for Chelsea on 13 August 2006 in the FA Community Shield, scoring his side's goal in a 2–1 loss to Liverpool. On 23 August, he scored his first Premier League goal — and his 300th in top-flight and international football — in a 2–1 loss to Middlesbrough. He scored goals sporadically throughout the season, including equalisers against Porto and Valencia in the UEFA Champions League and another against Tottenham Hotspur to help take his side into the FA Cup semifinals. He finished with a total of 14 from 51 games. During the campaign he netted his 57th career goal in European competitions, leaving him second behind Gerd Muller on the all-time European goalscorers list, before Filippo Inzaghi made the record his own in the 2007–08 season.[9] Shevchenko's 2006–07 season was cut short due to injury and a hernia operation. He missed the Champions League semi-finals against Liverpool and the FA Cup Final against Manchester United at the new Wembley Stadium on 19 May 2007.[10] He did however start for Chelsea in the 2007 Football League Cup Final victory over Arsenal F.C. in which he hit the bar which would have given Chelsea a 3-1 lead.

Shevchenko was handed his first start of the season against Blackburn Rovers at home to cover for the injured Didier Drogba, but the game finished goalless. His first goal of the season came three days later in a match against Rosenborg which was Jose Mourinho's last game as manager of Chelsea. Throughout the season Shevchenko was in and out of the starting lineup because of injuries and the appointment of Avram Grant following the departure of José Mourinho. However, during the Christmas period Shevchenko enjoyed a good run of form, he scored the first goal in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Sunderland A.F.C. and he was named Man of the Match in Chelsea's 4-4 draw against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge, scoring twice including a stunning 25 yard shot into the top right hand corner of Villa's goal, he also assisted Alex to make the score 3-2 in Chelsea's favour. He finished with five league goals for the season in 17 games, a decent average of 1 in 3, but he was still seen as a flop. Shevchenko scored his last goal in the 2007–08 season in the 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers F.C.. Shevchenko also played a part in another pre season match which was against his former team A.C. Milan. He then returned to the Italian club on loan just a few days later. Shevchenko rejoined Chelsea for the 2009–10 season and the last year of his contract.

Loan back to Milan

Shevchenko playing for AC Milan

Shevchenko was loaned back to old club A.C. Milan for the 2008–09 season. Andriy wasn't used very often in the starting lineup at Chelsea, and with the appointment of Luiz Felipe Scolari he was deemed surplus to requirements. Due to this, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani offered to take Shevchenko back to the San Siro.

Shevchenko's second spell was unsuccessful, as he failed to score any league goals, and only achieved 2 goals in 26 appearances, however Shevchenko only started 9 of those games. At the end of the season, Milan confirmed that Shevchenko would be returning to Chelsea for the final year of his 4-year contract. At the end of that season it was also announced that the manager of AC Milan, Carlo Ancelotti, would also be leaving to join Chelsea.

Return to Dynamo Kyiv

After making a late appearance for Chelsea in their second game of the 2009–10 season, manager Ancelotti announced that Shevchenko would be likely to leave Chelsea before the summer transfer window closed.[11] Despite this, Ancelotti said it had nothing to do with his decision to leave Shevchenko out of Chelsea's 2009–10 Champions League squad, but just to continue playing first-team football.[12] On 28 August the Ukrainian forward signed a two-year deal at his former club Dynamo Kyiv[13] and scored a penalty-goal in his first game upon returning to his former club against FC Metalurh Donetsk in Dynamo's 3–1 victory on August 31, 2009. On September 16, 2009 Shevchenko played his first Champions League match after returning to Dynamo. He played against FC Rubin Kazan in Dynamo's first game of the UEFA Champions League 2009–10 season. In October,2009 he was named the best player of the Ukrainian Premier League. On November 4, 2009 he scored a goal in the game against F.C. Internazionale Milano in the 4th game of the UEFA Champions League 2009–10 season. It was his 15th goal against F.C. Internazionale Milano.

International career

Shevchenko scores a penalty kick in 2006 FIFA World Cup match against Tunisia.

Shevchenko has 94 caps and 43 goals for the Ukrainian national team, whom he represented at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. He scored his first international goal in May 1996, in a friendly against Turkey.

In March 2000, Dynamo manager Valeri Lobanovsky became the Ukraine coach, with the aim to qualify for the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals. Shevchenko scored 10 goals in the qualifiers, but Ukraine failed to qualify after losing a play-off against Germany. He scored a total of five goals in Ukraine's Euro 2008 qualifiers.

After only playing two games for A.C. Milan in the season 08/09 there was a lot of speculation (especially before England vs Ukraine in the world cup qualifiers) of Andriy being past his best but he silenced his critics after he fired in an equaliser against England at the New Wembley Stadium, however Ukraine went on to lose the game 2-1 after his former Chelsea F.C. teammate John Terry had scored from a corner kick.

In a December 21, 2009 interview with uefa.com Shevchenko declared that he was keen to play in his home country at UEFA EURO 2012. "After a disappointing 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign that is my new challenge, or even dream. I will do everything to achieve that."[14]

Personal life

Shevchenko is married to American model Kristen Pazik. The couple met at a Giorgio Armani afterparty in 2002, and married on 14 July 2004 in a private ceremony on a golf course in Washington, DC.[15][16] They communicate with each other in Italian,[17] though Shevchenko had previously made public his desire to learn English.[18] After his return to Dynamo Kyiv in August 2009 the couple declared that they want their children to learn Ukrainian.[19]

The couple have two sons: Jordan,[17] born on 29 October 2004, and Christian, born on 10 November 2006. Andriy commemorated Jordan's birth by scoring against Sampdoria the following day (Milan won 1–0).[20] Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi is the Godfather of Andriy's first son, Jordan.[21] The day after Christian's birth, Shevchenko scored in a 4–0 Chelsea victory over Watford, and he and several of his teammates gathered and performed the popular "rock-the-baby" goal celebration as a tribute.[22]

Shevchenko is a close friend of fashion designer Giorgio Armani, and has modelled for Armani and opened two boutiques with him in Kyiv.[15] In June 2005, he became an ambassador for the SOS Children's Villages charity.[23]

Name

Shevchenko's first name (Андрій in Ukrainian) does not have a single way of being transliterated from its original spelling in the Ukrainian Cyrillic alphabet into the Latin alphabet. Andriy is the spelling used throughout the player's official web site.[24] It has also been adopted by UEFA and FIFA and is the preferred spelling in most English publications (although Andrii is used by World Soccer magazine and Andrei by Sky Sports). The Ukrainian pronunciation is [anˈdrij]. Dynamo Kiev fans gave him the nickname Sheva,[citation needed] a contraction of Shevchenko.
