Andriy Shevchenko has ruled out the possibility of a return to Milan, insisting he is happy at Chelsea.
The Ukraine striker made a summer move to Stamford Bridge, but he has struggled to recapture the form that persuaded Chelsea to part with £30 million for his services.
Milan have struggled in Shevchenko’s absence and there have been reports that he would welcome a return to Italy.
“I do not regret my move to England and I am glad I chose London,” he told Controcampo. “I am very happy here.”
Didier Drogba has been in scintillating form at Chelsea since Shevchenko’s arrival, but the Ukrainian is not unconcerned by his own lack of goals.
“Drogba is living a fortunate moment, but I am sure that things will change and my time will come.
“There is no chance of me returning to Milan.
“Players go through difficult times and it happens to everyone. But I feel young and full of energy.
“I chose Chelsea and I will continue on this path. Nothing can change my choice. Life goes beyond football.
“I feel more free here (London) than in Italy. The life of a footballer in London is more simple, football is a show that finishes once the game is over.
“I want to thank the fans for the big support for me,” the player told Chelsea TV. “It was very important, so thank you so much.
“I think second half I play good but it is difficult for me. I am not feeling the best condition but my condition is coming.”
