Malouda Promises Truth 'Explosion'

Chelsea outcast, Florent Malouda, says he will “explode” the details of his banishment to the youth ranks at Stamford Bridge when the right time comes.

The veteran French winger has been forced by the Blues to train with their youth team for the remainder of his contract at the club.

Malouda had been in talks to join Santos both at the beginning of the season and during the January transfer window, only for negotiations with the Brazilian club to break down.

For some reason, the 32-year-old has not been welcome around the first-team at Chelsea, since being surplus to requirements after last season’s Uefa Champions League final.

And while it does seem odd that Malouda is sitting out the final year of his contract with Chelsea’s kids, rather than finding a new club to play for, he insists it is not about money.

And he says he will reveal the truth about his treatment by Chelsea when he is no longer under contract with the club.

"The details, I'm going to explode them when I'm free, but the strategy employed is to make me look like a player who wants to be paid a lot," Malouda told France-Guyane.

"It's underhand, but it makes me smile more than anything else because it shows just how much esteem those people have for me."

Asked why he had not opted to move when it became clear he was being punished by Chelsea, Malouda explained that the actions of the Blues simply made him more stubborn, and he has dug his heels in.

"If you're excluded for a whole year, it's very, very long. You have to be ready mentally. All of this is being done to break me mentally. In reality, it motivates me hugely," Malouda said.

"Naturally, I have to keep things back. I've respected that up to now, and so I'll continue to do so."
