Available in:

Claude Makélélé Sinda (French pronunciation: ​; born 18 February 1973) is a French former footballer and current head coach at Eupen in the Belgian First Division A.

In his playing career, which ended at Paris Saint-Germain, Makélélé also played for Nantes, Marseille, Celta de Vigo, Real Madrid and Chelsea. He won league titles in France, Spain and England, as well as the 2001–02 UEFA Champions League during his time with Real Madrid.

Makélélé was a French international for 13 years, and was part of the France national team which reached the final of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. He also represented his nation at the 2002 World Cup, two UEFA European Football Championships and the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Regarded as one of the greatest ever players in his position, Makélélé has been credited with redefining the defensive midfield role in English football, especially during the 2004–05 FA Premier League season, where he played a key role in helping Chelsea win the title with 95 points. In homage, a deep defensive midfield position is colloquially known as the "Makélélé Role".
