Club career

Mäkelä began his career with Oulu LS and Tervarit Oulu in his hometown before moving to HJK Helsinki in the Veikkausliiga for the 2003 season. In his first season he was champion and cup winner with HJK. After a disappointing second year, the 2005 season went better, in which he was top scorer with 16 goals. In January 2006 he moved to Heart of Midlothian in Scotland . Overall, Mäkelä scored 33 times for HJK in 66 games. He scored his first goal for the Hearts on April 8, 2006 in a 4-0 win over Dunfermline Athletic . In January 2007 it was awarded to FC Thun for six months after a loan to SpVgg Greuther Fürth had previously been canceled. On April 24, 2008 it was awarded again, this time for three months to his former club HJK Helsinki. During this time he scored seven goals in 13 games for HJK, but went back to Edinburgh in late July. In February 2009, Mäkelä finally returned to Finland to HJK Helsinki and became Finnish champions with them in 2009 and 2010.

In December 2010 Mäkelä, who was the top scorer in the 2010 season, signed a contract with Sydney FC . He scored his first goal on his debut against Gold Coast United . After the 2011/12 season, he received no new contract offer from Sydney and returned to Finland for HJK Helsinki, where he scored ten goals in 27 games in the 2012 season.

At the end of January 2013, Mäkelä moved to the German second division club SV Sandhausen on a free transfer . He signed a contract until the end of the 2012/13 season. This should be extended automatically if Sandhausen manage to stay in the league and Mäkelä would complete a certain number of missions. Ultimately, Sandhausen missed the sporting league and only later moved to the 2nd Bundesliga after the license withdrawal for MSV Duisburg . The then contractless Mäkelä then trained as a trial with the Duisburgers, but received no contract.

On November 8, 2013, FC St. Gallen announced the commitment of Juho Mäkelä, he signed a contract until the end of the 2013/14 season. Shortly before the end of the season and the Finnish transfer window, the contract was terminated and Mäkelä moved to IFK Mariehamn .

National team

Mäkelä made his debut for the Finnish national team on February 3, 2004 in a friendly against China . Since then he has made 6 more international matches.
