New Chelsea striker Andrii Shevchenko has admitted his main target this season is to win the Champions League.
Shevchenko, who joined the English Premiership champions from Milan for £30million in May, has experienced the highs and lows of the competition. He helped Milan to success in 2003, but also played in the 2005 final, when Milan were beaten by Liverpool on penalties.
Shevchenko told Chelsea’s website: “As a player my objective is always the same. My team comes first. I have the same objectives as the team. They have won the league and I would like to help the team to win the Champions League.
“Chelsea have been consistently wanting me for the past three years and I wanted to play for a club with great champions, great organisation, great management and Chelsea was the one I chose.
“When you put all those things together you come up with one objective, which is to win. You can really only see at the end of the year how things work out but I feel the team has the quality.”
Shevchenko is in the United States at present, preparing for Chelsea’s friendly match against the MLS All-stars on Saturday.
He added: “They are great players and a great group. I felt there was a real togetherness in the team. Everyone has accepted me really well.
“This change in clubs has only helped increase my motivation. It has only been one training session but it is a good style, a little different to what they do at Milan, but you are talking about two good styles for training and for me it only helps motivate me.”
