'I'm happy, not terrified', insists Malouda

LONDON, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Chelsea's France forward Florent Malouda said on Tuesday that contrary to British media reports he was happy with his life at the English club.

The £13 million ($27 million) signing from Olympique Lyon had been quoted by newspapers as saying that Chelsea's training sessions were 'terrifying' and that players in the Premier League switched their brains off during matches.

However, he told Chelsea TV that quotes picked up from an interview he had given to France Football magazine last month had been misinterpreted by British media.

'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,' Malouda said.

'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,' he said on the club's website.

'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,' he added.

The 27-year-old is nursing a knee injury sustained against Schalke 04 in the Champions League a month ago.

Speaking to Chelsea TV about the club's intense training sessions, Malouda added: 'Now I'm injured, and it's hard when you're injured because you have to train hard to become fit.'

He was quoted by British media saying: 'Training sessions are terrifying. They are just like matches and you go flat out.

'During the actual games it is as though everybody's brains are switched off. People play by instinct, spontaneously, in the way they did when they first discovered football.'

Malouda was also quoted by British newspapers remarking on the diets of players at Chelsea, saying they were free to choose whatever they liked to eat and drink.
