Team of '94: Kanchelskis


What others said ''Everyone now sees Andrei as the best right-sided player in the country. He used to drive everyone potty because he ran with his head down and his delivery never matched his build-up. That's changed with maturity and confidence." - Bryan Robson.

Just the stats The Ukrainian made 28 starts in the Premier League with a further three appearances as substitute. He had to fight to get into the side amid plenty of speculation regarding his future and did not appear in Europe, largely due to the foreign-players rule. However, he did feature in all nine League Cup ties and only missed one match of the FA Cup run. He impressively managed to get into double figures in the goal charts.

Trivia Kanchelskis became the first player to be sent off in a League Cup final when he handled a Dalian Atkinson shot against Aston Villa and referee Keith Cooper dismissed him.

What happened next? Despite signing a new contract, he was sold to Everton when a protracted deal was finally concluded for £5million at the start of the 1995/96 season. After also representing Manchester City later in his career, he is now assistant coach at FC Volga Nizhny Novogorod.
