There is no doubt in recent weeks, Florent Malouda's form has got better. He is back playing well and scoring goals and has given an interview featured here in The Telegraph. The overall sense you get from his interview is the fact that he wants to feel important at Chelsea and isn't so sure he is. He said:
“To play at a club like Chelsea you have to be a player who takes responsibilities and risks. I have improved my efficiency and progressed. I just want to feel I am important at the club. Sometimes I don’t feel so when I see in the media that the club are thinking of selling me, and I know I’m doing great.

I’m 30. I want to be the Ryan Giggs of Chelsea! I want to extend my contract by one year until 2014. The club have been saying that because I am over 30, I have to wait until the last year of my contract to speak about an extension. Questions come into my mind. Do the club want me to stay?

I said to them I want to know if there will be a revolution at the club this summer. There’s a lot of rumours. They are saying I am one of the key players, one of the players we want to keep. Afterwards I see rumours in the press that I may be leaving, so I call them up, and say: ‘Where is this coming from?’

They know I want to stay, to be treated as a key player. I want to win trophies, make sure we will still be competitive. As an experienced player, we have to prepare for next season. I am waiting for a signal from the club. The fans tell me, ‘You are doing great, please stay.’ I am giving everything for the club. When I came, it was really difficult. I had to take a position in the fans’ heart. I am now. I received an award as best player last year from the players and staff. They recognised. I am much appreciated by the coach. But I need support from the club as well.

You have to say, Malouda's form has picked up at the right time for him personally but maybe too late for the club. The problem we have seen this season with Malouda (and like most of the others) is that his form has been indifferent compared to last season. He started off on fire, then dipped drastically and has now picked up again and you can imagine the club will look at what's happened with a dim view because as a club we cannot accept that from anyone at the club.

For me, and I know I have said it before on here, Malouda seemed to have "issues" this season and I posted and on here stating that he wasn't enjoying his football, seemed as though he had the weight of the world on his shoulders and the smile on his face had disappeared. He wasn't enjoying his football.

I know alot of Chelsea fans are just as frustrated as me with Malouda this season and understand that the club want to wait till the end of the season to take a look at our "older" players and make decisions on just how important they are to Chelsea whether or not they fit in their plans.

Malouda says he wants to feel more important at the club. You cannot help but feel that he had that, but has lost it during the course of this season but, he is taking the right steps in recent weeks and let's hope it carries on until the end of the season.
