Marcel Desailly was at the heart of the France team which triumphed at the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000, as well as lifting the Champions League with both AC Milan and Marseille.
An African-born defender who went on to conquer Europe, Desailly enjoyed a glittering 20-year career which also included a spell with Chelsea before ending his playing days in Qatar.
Desailly was live in the studio to talk Champions League and also to answer your questions this week as the CNN Football Club debated who is European football’s top defender.
But that isn’t the only way for you to get involved.
