Maxime Chanot is a French-born Luxembourgish footballer who plays as a central defender for New York City in Major League Soccer.
Having joined Sheffield United in 2006 from Stade de Reims Chanot became a regular in the academy and reserves sides. The aggressive, athletic central defender joined Mansfield Town on loan on 4 October 2008, and made his debut for Mansfield in the 0-1 defeat against Woking despite picking up man of the match award. He returned to Bramall Lane having played five games for The Stags. As the Blades looked to cut costs, having failed to gain promotion, Chanot was released at the end of the 2008-09 season.
