Marcel Desailly (born September 7, 1968 in Accra, Ghana) is a Ghanaian football player, currently a citizen of France and a former star for its national team, with whom he won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000.

Desailly moved to France after he was adopted as a young child by a French diplomat, and began his career in FC Nantes. In 1992, he moved to Olympique de Marseille, and won the European Cup the following year. In 1994, while a member of AC Milan, he again won the Cup, being the first player to win the Cup in consecutive seasons with different clubs. Although he prefers to be a defender, he also played midfield for some time.

Desailly then moved to the English club, Chelsea FC, where he played centre-back until the end of the 2003-04 season. After Euro 2004, he retired from international football as the all-time leader in appearances for France (116). He currently plays for the Al Gharafa club in Qatar.

Desailly is considered one of the most accomplished players in the game and one of the best players of the past two decades, having won virtually every major team award.
