Milan keep Sheva place open

09 May 2007 - 14:36:33

Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko has been offered an escape route back to his former club after AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani revealed he would keep open a place in the squad.

Shevchenko has been largely disappointing since leaving the Rossoneri in a £30million move to Stamford Bridge last season.

The Ukraine striker has netted just four times in the Premiership and has been continually linked with a return to Milan, amid rumours that he has not seen eye-to-eye with Blues manager Jose Mourinho at times during a disappointing campaign.

Shevchenko will also miss the FA Cup final later this month after being sent for surgery to correct a groin problem following Chelsea's failure to retain the Premiership title.

"Sheva remains in our hearts, he and his wife have been invited to Athens to follow the Champions League final," revealed Galliani.

"As for the future, let's see, he is a Chelsea player. Anyway, he knows, we will keep a place open for a few months seeing as after his marriage Kaka has freed up a non-European Union place."

Shevchenko scored 127 goals in 208 appearances for Milan during seven seasons at the San Siro.
