Claude Makelele has backed Florentino Perez's return to Real Madrid.

Makelele left Real for Chelsea in bitter circumstances, but insists Perez is the leader Real needs.

"This will be good," said PSG midfielder Makelele. "When I was there he turned us into a super club. Everyone dreamed of playing for Real and getting this shirt.

"He knows how to make the changes. He's aware of everything and knows the way to achieve a better future. Football is the greatest sport, there is no comparison."
