Chelsea ace Malouda: Wembley not as bad as some pitches I played on ... as a kid!

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda insists the Wembley pitch is not that bad.

Malouda was delighted to be again on the scoresheet in their FA Cup semifinal success over Aston Villa.

"As a professional footballer I could complain about any pitch," admitted Malouda, "but if you had seen some of the pitches I played on at grassroots level, you would be amazed.

"So I can't complain about this pitch, it's Wembley. Although it wasn't perfect at the start we played very good football in the end and we won."
