Shevchenko lands his first European job
Andriy Shevchenko was during his time at AC Milan one of the best footballers in the world. 127 goals in Serie A and a single Ballon d'Or speaks its clear language. After the striker put his boots on the shelf, he was away from football for a number of years, after which he landed a job as an assistant coach on the Ukrainian national team.
Six months later, Shevchenko got the keys to the store and led Ukraine to the European Championships this summer as national coach. Here, the team reached the quarter-finals, where, however, it turned into a 4-0 defeat to England. The 45-year-old Ukrainian is currently without a job, but according to Italian La Gazzetta dello Sport, he has now landed his first club job.
Genoa have only won a single match this season and have only one point down to the relegation line. The club will be taken over by the American investment company 777 Partners in nine days, and they will, according to the media, fire the club's current coach, Davide Ballardini. The deal should have already been signed with Shevchenko, who is expected to sign it next week. He gets two years at the club plus the possibility of one more season.
