Andrii Shevchenko has dismissed talk of a return to Milan, saying he is happy with life at Chelsea.
The Ukrainian says he is adapting to English football and remains optimistic about his team’s chances in the Champions League.
“At the beginning it was difficult. I had to change the way I played, adapt to English football. I believe it’s normal to have a period of adjustment,” the striker told Radio Italia.
“I arrived at Chelsea following a difficult season for me with injuries and a World Cup behind me, but I have now overcome that difficult time.”
The striker also said he had made up coach Jose Mourinho and was enjoying his football again.
“With Mourinho, things are going well,” he added.
Shevchenko is still a fan of Milan and remains close friends with club president Silvio Berlusconi.
“I speak with president Berlusconi often,” added Shevchenko.
“For me, it was extremely difficult to tell the president that I wanted to leave.
“I’ll never forget Milan. For me, it was a very important experience and one which has allowed me to become the player I am.
“But I made my choice, I arrived in England and now I want to continue on this path.”
