LONDON - Andriy Shevchenko is ready to leave Chelsea if Jose Mourinho decides he does not fit into his plans.
The Ukraine star, 30, has scored just three league goals since his £30,8m (about R216 million) summer move and has been linked with a return to AC Milan.
"I feel at home and it's felt like my team for a long time but unfortunately my game doesn't suit Mourinho. Roman Abramovich is my friend but all he could do was insist on a loan deal instead of me being sold," he said.
Shevchenko, who scored his first European goal for Chelsea in Tuesday's 2-0 Champions League win over Levski Sofia, said he had not discussed his future with the club.
The question is, how much of a say did Mourinho have in Shevchenko going to Chelsea?
"But if it happens, I am ready to pack my bags," he said. "I'm a completely self-confident person. If I don't suit somebody then I'll go back to Italy and prove how good I can still be.
"I'm not finished as a player. On the other hand I have nothing to prove. Everybody knows what Andriy Shevchenko is capable of."
Chelsea owner Abramovich lured the forward to Stamford Bridge on a four-year contract in May in the belief that he would provide the goals to win the Champions League. - BBC
