Moises Caicedo receives massive advice from Chelsea legend Claude Makelele

Claude Makelele sends massive advice to Chelsea star, Moises Caicedo

Chelsea great, Claude Makelele has shared some advice for Moises Caicedo.

Caicedo is the man that Chelsea signed to step into the role Makelele left at the club 16 years ago.

However, since making the move to Stamford Bridge last summer, Caicedo hasn’t quite lived up to his £115m price tag, and has come under fire occasionally for poor displays.

Makelele believes there’s inherent talent in Caicedo, but wants the 22-year-old to be smarter in the way he plays.

“He needs to learn,” the Frenchman told The Athletic when discussing Caicedo.

“He’s an amazing player.

“If Chelsea don’t give him the platform with these details, he will struggle and it will be difficult and he won’t play at a higher level than he was before in the Premier League. He needs to learn, to read; it’s very important for people to give him this message.”

“It’s not about the physical quality, it’s about the smarts,” Makelele added, as he spoke about playing as a ‘6’.

“Understanding about when to make an impact, when not to, learning about where your team-mates are, you have to use this position to read the game.

“You need to have leadership in this position. You don’t play for yourself, you play for everyone else to be OK in the team. Because the manager can’t do anything anymore, you have to guide the way to play and the way to win.”
