Shevchenko to rejoin AC Milan from ChelseaAugust 24th, 2008 - 7:06 pm ICT by IANS
Milan, Aug 24 (DPA) AC Milan said they are awaiting the return of their former striker Andriy Shevchenko from Chelsea after closing a controversial deal.The website of the Serie A giants said Sunday that the Ukrainian was due “in Milan to undergo medical tests Monday. The terms of the financial agreement with Chelsea are confidential”.
Sheva, who turns 32 Sep 29, played seven seasons at Milan. He scored 173 goals in 296 games and won a Serie A title and the Champions League with them.
“I’m fine and I’m happy,” he was quoted as saying. “I have been hoping to return for a while and I hoped that the negotiation turned out well. For me, it’s like having won a Champions League. There have been some complications, but now that it’s over I’m truly happy.”
Shevchenko left Milan to join the London powerhouse in 2006. His stint at Chelsea, however, was far from convincing and he was often left out of the starting lineup.
