Goodbye To Maka


Recommended Posts

Chelsea Football Club has released Claude Makelele on a free transfer today (Monday, July 21). Everyone at Chelsea FC would like to take this opportunity to thank Claude for the five years of service he has given to the club.

Claude has been a key part of our trophy success during that time and we wish him well for the future.

He will always be welcomed back to Stamford Bridge in the future either as a player or as a friend of the club.

Lol, loved his goal against Spurs though, that was a real cracker.

He has been outstanding for us, he has been one of our most vital players in our best and most successful years. It is a shame he has to move on, but i think it is the right time for the club and it is nice for Maka to spend another 2 years playing in Paris.

Lol, cracking goal.....

Maka has worked incredibly hard for us over the years in a role that goes largely unnoticed. His reading of the game was second to none. He lost some of his pace and timing last season and ended up making a few late challenges but was still a real important player to us.

Forever, Makelele will be a Chelsea legend. A loyal and dedicated professional, his contribution to the club has been outstanding and he deserves every bit of recognition he gets. Best of luck back home, Claude!

The fact that there is no one involved with CFC who would have a bad word to say about the man says everything you need to know about Maka. Went against the grain of what you tend to expect from French players these days also.

People debate who is the greatest footballer ever, and only goal scorers come to our minds.. if there is any man unchallenged in his position it's Claude Makelele..

Very true Aroop. Always played with tremendous spirit,one of the French greats.
