Former AC Milan striker and Hall of Fame member Andriy Shevchenko turns 41 today, and we at SempreMilan have prepared a tribute video for the Ukranian.
Andriy Mykolayovych Shevchenko was born in 1976 in Dvirkivschyna, part of the old Soviet Union.
He spent 13 years in total with Dynamo Kiev before making a €25million move from the capital club to AC Milan in 1999, becoming the latest star-signing of Silvio Berlusconi’s illustrious tenure.
Sheva had two spells with the Rossoneri: the first saw him at the San Siro from 1999-2006 before he swapped Italy for Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea, and he returned on loan in the 2008/09 season having been deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.
A whole 321 appearances, 174 goals, five major trophies, two Capocannoniere titles and one Ballon d’Or trophy later, we can look back and marvel at one of the greatest strikers of the modern era.
