Coming from the continent can be a tricky task at times, none more so than ex Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko. A whirlwind of a player, the Ukraine international spent his most impressive years in the red and black of AC Milan. While playing at the San Siro, Shevchenko knocked in

127 goals in a little over 200 appearances. However his transition to England was not as smooth when he signed for the Blues. He was brought in for around $60 million and failed to live up the hype.

However, this has not stopped Shevchenko from going on to bigger and brighter things. This is largely in part down to having a go at being a politician. Since retiring from the game, Andriy Shevchenko has attempted to make a name for himself back in his homeland. Highly respected in Ukraine, he has now dabbled in politics and actually stood in the Parliamentary election which took place back in 2012. The so called Forward! Party did not have much to celebrate though as Shevchenko's party only managed to secure less than 2% of the overall votes.
