Andriy Shevchenko has taken his first steps into football management, having been appointed the new Ukraine manager.
The former Chelsea striker joined the coaching set-up for the Ukraine national team at the Euro's where the team crashed out in the group stages.
And he has now stepped up to become the new manager, replacing Mykhaylo Fomenko. Shevchenko reportedly turned down the job a couple of years back but has penned a two-year contract this time around, with the option to extend for a further two years.
