Claude Makelele
Club:Real Madrid
Position:Midfielder

The Spanish-based midfielder has made public his impatience at being one of France's super-sub contingent.

But Makele has a difficult task to change that with the likes of Patrick Vieira, Zinedine Zidane and Emmanuel Petit in France's key midfield roles.

The 29-year-old insists he does not regret missing out on the chance to have won more international caps, after he turned down the chance to represent the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Strong at winning possession for France, he has regularly matched Luis Figo and Zidane for Real.

He joined the Primera Liga side from Celta Vigo for 10m. He had previously played for French side Nantes.
