Makelele joins Pochettino in Chelsea

According to reports, Claude Makelele, a former technical mentor at Chelsea, has resigned from his position.


During his time with the Blues, the Frenchman made 217 games and won two Premier League championships.

Makelele quit playing for Chelsea in 2008, but he returned to the team eleven years later as a technical and development consultant.

At the start of Frank Lampard’s first season as manager at Stamford Bridge, he joined the team.


Gianluca Di Marzio notes that Makelele has since resigned from his role as a club coach, and that this choice was made amicably.

The former midfielder’s duties included working closely with Chelsea academy stars at their Cobham training facility.

Additionally, he visited stars who were on loan from the club and regularly provided match analysis.

Makelele made a splash at Stamford Bridge earlier this month when he participated in a legends game in honour of Gianluca Vialli, a former Blues player.

He participated in Chelsea Legends’ 4-0 victory over Bayern Munich Legends, despite rumours that he had already departed the team.

Makelele is just the second coach who has reportedly left west London in as many days.
