Shevchenko to make Chelsea coaching return - report

The 35-year-old could be set to retire from playing following Ukraine's Euro 2012 campaign and is weighing up whether to take a backroom role with the Blues
Dynamo Kiev striker Andriy Shevchenko could be in line for a return to Chelsea as a coach, according to the Daily Mail.

The 35-year-old, who endured a disastrous spell with the west London outfit following a £30.8 million move in 2006, will decide whether to retire from playing at the end of Euro 2012.

He will captain Ukraine at the tournament, who will co-host the showpiece alongside Poland, and could then choose to take up a backroom role.

Shevchenko initially made his name as one of Europe's most clinical strikers, winning a Serie A title and the Champions League with AC Milan.
5/4 Ukraine are 5/4 with William Hill to qualify from Group D at Euro 2012.

However, he scored just nine goals in 47 Premier League appearances for the Blues before returning to his current club via a loan spell back in Milan.

Despite his lack of success at Stamford Bridge, the Ukrainian is believed to have retained ties with the club's owner Roman Abramovich and still owns a house in nearby Surrey.
