Houllier pleased for Malouda success at Chelsea

Gerard Houllier has hailed the progress of Florent Malouda at Chelsea.

Houllier coached Malouda at Lyon and has praised the winger's work rate as well as the range of skills he brings to a team.

"He definitely improved a lot when I was at Lyon. Whether that was thanks to me I am not sure but he is a very useful player, a modern player, one who can go forward and scores goals but at the same time be involved in the game," the coach explained to Chelsea's official website.

"He can defend, he can attack, he has a good left foot, so there are a lot of attributes to his game. He's also a very good team-mate."
