Marcel Desailly
Club:Chelsea
Position:Defender

Ghana-born Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly is one of the most successful players of the last decade.

He won the Champions League with both Marseille and AC Milan before helping France to their World Cup and European Championship successes.

Desailly had an excellent World Cup in 1998, but it was marred by his sending-off in the final against Brazil.

He started his career in midfield but his speed, strength and solidity saw him adapt to defensive duties with ease.

He is excellent in the air and a constant threat from set-pieces in the opposition's penalty area.
