As you know, in January, Shevchenko left the post of head coach of Genoa. The Ukrainian has led the team since November 2021. His contract with the club runs until 2024. Under the leadership of Shevchenko, Genoa played nine matches in the Italian championship, in which they drew three times and suffered six defeats. In the last match of Shevchenko as the head coach of the Italian club, there was a defeat from Milan (1:3, ET) in the Italian Cup, and after that the club terminated the contract with the Ukrainian coach.

At the moment, the Polish Football Association is engaged in the formation of the coaching staff of the national team.
Three candidates are being considered for this position:
- Andriy Shevchenko
- Jedji Dudek;
- Lukasz Piszczek;
