The ex-striker is clearly not happy at being paid for just one sport.
Ex-AC Milan and Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko retired from football after the European Championships in 2012, but is now about to start a professional golf career.
The 36-year-old will compete in the former striker’s native Ukraine during the Kharkov Superior Cup, alongside Ryder Cup player Oliver Wilson and former European Tour winner Nick Dougherty.
Shevchenko had a relatively successful career in football, winning Serie A and the Champions League whilst with Milan, as well as being awarded the prestigious Ballon D’Or in 2004.
However, after making the £30.8m switch to Stamford Bridge in 2006 the forward flopped in west London and has become regarded as one of the most expensive mistakes in Premier League history.
Aside from a difficult three years in England, Shevchenko was considered a success in the sport and also scored 48 goals in 111 caps for the Ukrainian national team.
Yet now the former star is going to try and turn his hand to golf, but is realistic about the chances at a professional tournament.
“This is the first big event for me and of course it is the first event in Ukraine so it’s a huge event for golf in this country,” Shevchenko was quoted by the Telegraph.
“I have played with many good players in pro-ams but this is different. I hope I play well…but I just want to have a good time and enjoy the week.”
