Campbell: Chelsea's Shevchenko training stepped up after Mourinho exit
British Olympic sprint champ Darren Campbell has confirmed he's been working with Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko.
"While Mourinho was at the club he was a little bit funny about anybody from outside working with the players. But it was something Shevchenko wanted to happen, so for the first couple of sessions I had to do it at his house on his tennis court.
"Now that Mourinho is gone I'm able to do it at the club. Shevchenko was paying for it, that's how serious he is about sharpening up and trying to improve himself.
"So for all the Chelsea fans who are on his back, I can say he really is trying to improve himself and play well for the club.
"Over the last few months it's definitely worked, he's been scoring for Ukraine and for Chelsea in the Champions League. We've been working on his 10m and 30m pace. He's improved by a few tenths which is what the club wanted."
