Florent Malouda: An unhappy period since winning the Champions League last May

Florent Malouda: An unhappy period since winning the Champions League last May

The 32-year-old France international, who moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2007, was excluded from the 25-man first-team squad and has spent the season training with the Under 21 team.

Malouda told France-Guyane: "The details I'll explain when I'm free, but the strategy they use is to make me look like a player seeking substantial compensation.

"It's petty but more than anything else it makes me smile because it shows how these people regard me. If you are excluded for one year, it is very, very long. You must be armed mentally.

"All this is done to break me mentally, but in reality it motivates me enormously."

Malouda has been linked with a move to Anzhi Makhachkala with the Russian transfer window open until the end of February.

He declined to reveal more due to "confidentiality", but is likely to open up on his anticipated release this summer.

Malouda, who arrived at Stamford Bridge in July 2007 from Lyon for around £13.5m, tweeted a picture in September of the club's U21 headquarters, with the message: "This is where I'll train for my last season with the Blues!!!"

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
