Chelsea winger Florent Malouda insists he is willing to stay at Stamford Bridge next season as rumors of his departure as a part of squad overhaul have been floating around.
The French winger has won the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League with Chelsea this year and is looking forward to win a few more trophies with the club. The Blues will face Europa League winners Atletico Madrid in the European Super Cup in August and will also participate in the Club World Cup at the end of the year. Speaking outside France’s pre-Euro 2012 training camp in Clairefontaine, Malouda said:
The European Super Cup and the Club World Cup are two competitions close to my heart. In five years at Chelsea, I have won five trophies, the ones that I came here to try and win. During the last two transfer windows, the club have said that I was not available for transfer.
When asked if that meant he still saw his future with Chelsea, the 32-year-old former Lyon player replied:
This season has reminded of my first season at Chelsea. You have to accept it. I finished the previous campaign as Chelsea’s leading scorer in the league and I started the next season on the bench.
But I have had to prove myself in the past and always managed to impose myself.
