Malouda yet to meet Chelsea boss Benitez

Florent Malouda is yet to meet Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez.

The French winger was a key part of the Champions League-winning side last season despite being dropped for the final but he was told he was free to leave the club last summer.

A move failed to materialise though and Malouda has made it quite clear he is happy to see out his £100,000-a-week contract at the club, which runs until June.

His involvement in the first team is so minimal that The Times report that when he was quizzed recently on the arrival of Benitez, he replied that he had not even met the Spaniard.
