Ex-striker Shevchenko elected Ukraine FA president

KYIV: Former Ukraine striker Andriy Shevchenko was elected president of the country’s Football Association (UAF) on Thursday.
The 47-year-old received 93 out of 94 votes at the UAF Congress in Kyiv. Shevchenko, who is a delegate, could have cast the 94th vote but chose not to.
Shevchenko, who retired from playing in 2012 after featuring for Dynamo Kyiv, AC Milan and Chelsea, replaces Andriy Pavelko, the UAF’s long-time president who faces trial in Ukraine on embezzlement charges. Pavelko has denied any wrongdoing.
