    Mourinho didn't want Shevchenko. He wanted Eto'o. Peter Kenyon brokered the deal, just like he did with Gael Kakuta (the affair that led to your transfer ban). Presumably he did it to impress Abramovich who admired Sheva quite a bit, and it was an easy transfer to make since Shevchenko wanted to move to the Premier League and Galliano came out and said Milan wouldn't hesitate to sell...

    Shevchenko was bought a few months before his 30th birthday on the back of an average season (by his standards at least) with Milan anyway. Add to that the time it takes to settle into a new league, learn the language, and adapt to a new style of play (i.e. not having players like Rui Costa, Kaka, Pirlo, Seedorf, etc. put chances on a plate) and its no mystery why he went down-hill.

    Basically, he was never worth £35M at the time. You just got mugged off. Still love the guy though, one of my favorite players to watch in his peak.
    Why did I get mugged off? Idgaf about who Chelsea buy :confused:

    Fair enough I suppose. Don't post in our thread often nowadays because it's full of potential line ups including Vidal, Hummels and Reus :facepalm:
