There was a surprise visitor to Chelsea's Cobham training complex on Monday, when Argentina legend Diego Maradona paid an unexpected visit.
"In the world of football he is a hero for every player, he is an incredible player," said Shevchenko, who has returned to training following a back problem.
"He is a legend, a hero for everyone, and a fantastic player. He has had a difficult life, but he is doing well now. His look is good and it's important for him.
"He has lost a lot of weight, and feels much better."
