Malouda Wants Chelsea Exit

Florent Malouda FRENCH international, Florent Malouda, has admitted that he could be forced to consider his future with Chelsea.

The player has struggled to hold down a regular place at Stamford Bridge following his £13.5 million move from Lyon in July 2007. Sacked coach Luiz Felipe Scolari admitted in an interview given before his departure that Malouda was not playing to the peak of his creative powers.

The midfielder has featured once in Guus Hiddink's three games at the helm and has admitted that he might look elsewhere unless he could secure more regular action before the summer.

Malouda told Sporting Life: "I would like to play more and there are three more months to try and get a space in the team. But if that doesn't happen, I will have to analyse the situation."

Malouda was linked with a switch to Juventus during the winter transfer window, though the Serie A side moved to quell the speculation. Chelsea is up against Claudio Ranieri's men in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League and currently holds a 1-0 lead after the first leg at Stamford Bridge.

"The rumours about Juventus came to me," Malouda added. "Juve are a great team, but at the moment we are rivals."
