Marcel Desailly

Where is Marcel Desailly now?

Having won nearly every major team honour in the game including the World Cup and the European Championships with France, Marcel Desailly finally ended his illustrious career in Qatar in 2006.

Since retiring, Desailly has been very busy in his role as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador to Ghana as well as numerous television appearances as a match analyst and pundit.

He was a huge success for ITV for their coverage of the 2010 World Cup and was also a big hit with viewers for beIN France’s coverage of Euro 2016, where he formed an entertaining allegiance with fellow pundits Robert Pires and Arsene Wenger.




Marcel Desailly has also set up an investment company which encompasses the Lizzy Sports Complex in Ghana which is a facility that houses a training centre and a football academy.

Desailly has also said that he may pursue a career in coaching at a later date and completed his UEFA Pro License in May 2016.

In July 2017 Marcel Desailly will be representing France in Star Sixes, a new six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.

Desailly and fellow ex France international Robert Pires also work closely with Swiss watch manufacturers Tag Heuer as brand ambassadors.
