Shevchenko committed to Chelsea cause

Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko has ruled out a return to AC Milan after insisting he is committed to Chelsea.

The Ukrainian signed for the Stamford Bridge side for £30million in the summer of 2006 but speculation linking him with a move back to Italy has persisted.

However, the 31-year-old has stressed he is happy with life in London - and he believes his former club have discovered a worthy successor in 18-year-old Brazilian Alexandre Pato.

'My life is at Chelsea now, I have served my time with Milan. I am at a big club and the team is doing well. Life is not only about the past,'' said Shevchenko, who won Serie A and the Champions League during his seven years with Milan and is still highly-rated in Italy.

'I am delighted with the mark I left behind at Milan and gave the best I had in seven glorious seasons.

'I love Milan and I love Italy, and I have always said that. There is always somebody to take your place and the future is Pato.''

The Ukrainian striker added in Gazzetta dello Sport: 'He has a way of playing which is similar to mine.

'He understands the game and finds gaps. I never liked standing still, and I can see that he doesn't like it either. At only 18, he is already so good.'
