Makelele ponders Chelsea future

Claude Makelele admits he's unsure of his future with Chelsea beyond the end of this season.

After seeing France qualify for Euro2008, he told L'Equipe: "Now we are qualified I hope I will be part of the group.

"I have to perform well this season for my club, and then be fresh and without injury for Euro 2008.

"It will be my last competition with Les Bleus.

"I have reached a point where playing is just a bonus rather than anything else."

On Chelsea, he said: "Will I go on after my contract in 2009? I don't know. It will depend on my desire and my physical condition.

"I will go on as long as I can. I will first take stock after Euro 2008."
