Better known as the 'Makelele' role these days.I was wondering about this and something came into mind.The 'Makelele' role is just a sweeper playing in midfield! Isnt this true? The player just sits infront of the defence line,reading the game,breaking up play and distributes supply to the people infront of him.I mean,hasnt any club tried this before? I know natural sweepers are rare these days,the best and last sweeper in my knowledge was Mathias Sammer...however he was better known as the 'Libero' or the attacking sweeper as they say.What do you guys think? Is the 'Makelele' role actually a sweeper playing in midfield? I bet Claude himself would make a superb sweeper but I think he is too short :lol: ,hahaha.Discuss please,cheers.
