Shevchenko: I want to prove worth at Chelsea

The forward joined The Blues last summer in a £30million transfer from Milan, but he has been branded a flop after failing to find his best form at Stamford Bridge.

"I'm happy in London," Shevchenko told the News of the World. "Give me time and next season you will see the real Shevchenko.

"I like playing with Didier and believe we can be the most effective partnership in the Premiership.

"I have needed some time to acclimatise to England but, given the chance, I can show the supporters the real me.

"I knew it would be difficult to adapt to Chelsea. It's a new club, a new life and it's been a difficult season.

"But I just wish people would give me the time to acclimatise and to get used to it all - then you will see."
