Manchester City player Nolito has named Blues legend Claude Makelele as part of his ultimate footballer.
The Manchester City winger was asked by the club’s YouTube channel to complete a player with attributes from past and present team-mates, and he couldn’t prevent picking Chelsea legend Claude Makelele.
Nolito said of the Frenchman: “I remember watching football as a child and he was running all the time. He wouldn’t stop.”
Makelele lasted five years as a Chelsea player, but it was enough to earn him legendary status at Stamford Bridge, and he was also good and unique that the holding midfield role was also named after him – the Makelele role.
