Andriy Shevchenko

A.C. Milan haven’t had a foreign forward as good as Andriy Shevchenko in the squad since the Marco Van Basten years. Sheva joined the Rossoneri in the 1999/2000 season after five championships played with Dinamo Kiev and soon became an untouchable part of the Rossoneri. He finished his first season top scorer with 24 goals, an almost impossibly high number for a debut season in Italian football. He was very fast and difficult to catch when he ran. He had a huge jump as well and could play with both feet. The forward had a knack of just running straight through the opposing defense. In 2003 he won the UEFA Champions League during an unforgettable Italian final against Juventus: the Rossoneri supporters will always remember his winning penalty that gave the victory to A.C. Milan. The following year he was one of the protagonists winning the Scudetto: even this time he scored the winning goal during the match against A.S. Roma on May 2nd. Thanks to this success he won the Pallone D’Oro in 2004. After a break when he played for Chelsea, Andriy came back as a Rossoneri player in the 2008/09 season where he found the love of his teammates and supporters again. The forward will always be remembered as the second Rossoneri goleador of all time, just after Nordhal.
