Malouda admitted some regret in the wake of Jose Mourinho's departure, but told The Sun: "Our success is built on a combination of hard work and talent.
"Above all, a collective spirit helps us perform at a consistently high level."
He added: "I'm very happy at Chelsea. My transfer wasn't straightforward but now I have to do everything I can to succeed here.
"My aims for the season are to settle at my new club so I can start to really express myself out on the pitch as fast as possible.
"But more importantly, I want to win trophies for the team."
