Veteran midfielder Claude Makelele believes winning the Champions League would earn Chelsea respect throughout the world.

Makelele won the trophy with Vicente del Bosque´s Real Madrid six years ago and now the France international is hoping to add to that success with victory over Manchester United in Moscow next Wednesday.

He said: "To win this competition would give Chelsea a lot of credit throughout Europe because then all the teams on the continent would respect us more."
