Chelsea's Malouda: Difficult to handle Premiership pace

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda admits he's struggling to adjust to the hurly-burly of the Premiership.

"The only aspect of adapting I am having difficulties with is in the style of English football," Malouda told Don Balon. "It's been difficult for me to change leagues since the game over here has nothing to do with what I played in France.

"The main difference is that there is a lot more expectation around football and the pressure is that much more intense.

"And when you are attacking everyone gets involved, whereas in France all of the players pass more in a more rigid system."
