Former striker of Dynamo, Milan and Chelsea Andriy Shevchenko will assist the coach of Ukrainian national football team. Sport Arena informs that Shevchenko has already confirmed his plans to join the coaching staff of the team.
Shevchenko will substitute Oleksandr Zavarov, who has been on the position for three years, assisting coach Mykhailo Fomenko.
