The former Chelsea forward endured a horrid time in the Premier League after his big money move two years ago.
“He did the right thing and I did not fear Milan would lose him,” Shevchenko said today.
“I knew from the start what choice Ricardo would make. We had spoken about it a great deal.
“I cannot say if he asked me advice. He asked me many things… Besides, our situations were different, certainly.
“I think he made a choice with his heart. With him Milan will get even stronger.”
