Former Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko says he will decide his future in football within the next two weeks. The 35-year-old legendary striker announced his international retirement following Ukraine's exit from Euro 2012. Shevchenko will be out of contract next month when his deal at Dynamo Kiev expires but he isn't rushing a decision on his future as he plans to take a short break before making up his mind.
"I will spend some time talking with my family to decide what I want to do," he said.
Shevchenko is the most popular footballer in Ukraine and is the record goalscorer for his country with 48 goals in 111 appearances. Two of those goals were scored in the 2-1 victory over Sweden this month, but that wasn't enough to make Ukraine progress out of the group stage. Despite that, Shevchenko says he is proud of how his country performed as co-hosts at Euro 2012.
"I am very proud of my country and that they hosted the European Championship. I think the country did a great job."
The former Chelsea and AC Milan striker has struggled with back and knee issues and has not yet ruled out retiring from playing completely.
"I will maybe have a couple more years playing football or maybe stop and become a coach," Shevchenko added. "We will see what happens but I want to stay in football because I love this game."
