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.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
