Veteran midfielder Claude Makelele has signed a one year extension to his contract with PSG. The 37 year old had announced earlier this year that he would hang up his boots at the end of the 2009/10 season but has now decided to take another shot at Ligue 1 glory with the capital club.
Kinshasa born Makelele started his career with Nantes and had a brief spell at Marseille before moving to Spain in 1998. He spent two years at Celta Vigo before joining Real Madrid in 2000. He had three successful seasons with Madrid’s Galacticos before opting for a move north to Chelsea. Makelele made nearly hundred and fifty appearances for the Blues before returning to France in 2008.
PSG, coached by Antoine Kombouaré, finished thirteenth in Ligue 1 last season.
