Winston Bogarde (born 22 October 1970) is a retired Dutch professional footballer.

A player of immense physical strength, he played mostly as a central defender, although he could occasionally appear on the left, and was best known for his spells at Ajax, FC Barcelona and Chelsea.

With the latter side, he garnered worldwide attention as, although he received almost no playing time (no Premier League appearances whatsoever in his last three seasons combined), he preferred to see out his lucrative contract.

Bogarde represented the Dutch national team in one World Cup and one European Championship.
