Chelsea winger Malouda: France players feel the pressure

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda admits France's players can feel the pressure coming from home.

France's players are having trouble dealing with the pressure, midfielder Malouda has admitted.

The 2006 runners-up are regularly knocked by fans, former players and even politicians and the Chelsea winger says some players are unable to relax on the field because of the negative publicity.

"There's a lot of expectation. It can touch the players and affect the way they play," said Malouda.
