Chelsea winger Malouda keen to play for Blanc

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda wants to play for new France coach Laurent Blanc.

Blanc's appointment had already been confirmed before the World Cup finals and Chelsea midfielder Malouda is optimistic he can get them back on the right track.

"I really hope and I think all the French now really hope that he [Laurent Blanc] can turn things in a positive way," he told Sky Sports News.

"There's a lot of expectation.

"People are aware it's going to be difficult but we need that - the nation needs that. So I hope he's going to be the man of the situation and will have everybody's help."
