The retired Ukrainian soccer star Andriy Shevchenko has been offered the Ukrainian national team coaching job.

Shevchenko played 111 times for Ukraine, scoring 48 goals for the national side.

He was named European player of the year in 2004.

Over an 18 year career, Shevchenko played for Dynamo Kyiv, AC Milan, and Chelsea.
