Florent Malouda: In last year of contract at Chelsea

Out-of-favour Chelsea winger Florent Malouda has hit out at the Stamford Bridge club over the way he has been treated this season.

The 32-year-old France international, who joined Chelsea in the summer of 2007 and is in the final year of his contract, was excluded from the Blues' 25-man first-team squad and has spent the season training with the Under-21 team.

"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," Malouda told France-Guyane.

"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, who has been linked with a move to Anzhi Makhachkala, with the Russian transfer window open until the end of this month, declined to reveal more due to "confidentiality", but may do so on his anticipated release this summer.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
