Ukraine have appointed legendary former AC Milan and Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko as their new head coach.

The 39-year-old, who won 111 caps, replaces Mykhaylo Fomenko, who saw his four-year spell in charge come to an end as a result of the national team’s disappointing Euro 2016 campaign.

Yevhen Konoplyanka’s team-mates crashed out at the group stage, losing all three of their matches against Germany, Poland and Northern Ireland.

Shevchenko, who signed a two-year contract with the possibility of another two-year extension, won the 2003 Champions League and the Ballon d’Or in 2004 but has never before worked as a manager.
