Malouda backtracks on Chelsea jibes

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda has dismissed suggestions he is unhappy at Stamford Bridge. Speaking exclusively to Chelsea TV, Malouda emphasised how inaccurate today's media reports had been about his time at the club. Malouda joined Chelsea in the summer from Lyon and insists he is very happy in London. Malouda said: 'I just want the fans to know that what I saw in the paper this morning is exactly the contrary to what I said to the French paper and the French people. 'One thing I tried to speak about is that I achieved a good adaptation in my new club, and I was speaking about London life. 'My family and kids are very happy here, and when I saw that this morning I was very disappointed. 'I have nothing more to add or to say about this, this is not true, and I just want the Chelsea fans to know that I really enjoy my new life.' The 27-year-old, who is currently nursing a knee injury, added: 'The way they did it was not fair. I don't know why they tried to make me appear like somebody who is not happy here. 'I repeat I chose to come here, and everybody here is happy with what I've done.' Malouda was reported to have branded English football 'brainless', describing training sessions as 'terrifying' and saying: 'People play by instinct, spontaneously, in the way they did when they first discovered football.' Meanwhile, Michael Ballack took another step on the road to a first team comeback by playing 80 minutes in a reserve win over Southend at Cobham. Ballack has been out of action with ankle problems since April - undergoing two operations.
