Malouda Issues Champions League Warning

Next up for us is a Champions League game at home to Marseille and Florent Malouda warns Didier Deschamps side, who won the French title last season won’t be a pushover.

The Chelsea winger says “Marseille will be a difficult one because if you look at the recent years the French teams have done well in the Champions League. Last year they had two teams in the last eight. It is big for Marseille, they were champions last year and were waiting a long time, so they will want a good start. They won’t want to come to Stamford Bridge and lose 4-0 like Bordeaux did two years ago. I can tell you it will be difficult in both games. Over there it is a big atmosphere but we are used to that.”

Well, they had waited a long time for their title and won it by six points in the end, so we shouldn’t take this game lightly even if it is at home. But after our domestic weekend, Marseille might just find there’s still a bit of life in these ‘old’ dogs yet!
