He has a host of winners medals to his name, including 5 consecutive league medals with Dynamo Kiev, and the Champions League with AC Milan.

39-year old Shevchenko has already appointed former AC Milan defender Mauro Tassotti as one of his coaches. His contract reportedly expires after the 2018 World Cup, which Russia is hosting.
