Having ended a disappointing two-year stint with Chelsea

AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko is enjoying life back at the San Siro, having ended a disappointing two-year stint with Chelsea.

The 31-year-old Ukraine ace had been a major star with the Rossoneri between 1999 and 2006, but struggled to translate that form to football in England.

He made his second full debut for Milan in the 2-0 weekend loss at Genoa, before helping his club to a 3-1 UEFA Cup victory over FC Zurich on Thursday evening.

Shevchenko said afterwards: "It was the first game I have felt good in for such a long time.

"I feel like I am on the right track, but I`m aware that I still have a lot of work to do.

"We played well against Zurich. Now it will be important for us to win against Lazio on Sunday so that we don`t fall further behind in the championship."
