“I think Malouda was the best player in this game” claimed Ancelotti after yesterdays comprehensive demolition of West Ham and he is absolutely spot on in his assessment.
Malouda was virtually unstoppable yesterday, he tormented West Ham throughout the entire game, was responsible for two of the goals and netted one for himself and in this sort of form Inter are going to have a seriously hard time trying to contain him.
Malouda has for a long time been an unsung hero, played often out of position and not given enough credit for what he contributes to the team effort, well not by the media anyway.
But it is not the media that Malouda needs to impress, it is the gaffer and that he certainly did.
“He was always giving us ideas on the left hand side, putting in crosses and when he scored that was a good moment” said Ancelotti
Fair comment and as long as Malouda continues in this rich vein of form it makes for a confident outlook ahead of the game against Inter on Tuesday something that Ancelotti himself intimated
“We maintained a good balance in the second half. We had a bit of a problem but we are improving and are confident for Tuesday against Inter Milan.”
Good to know and it must also be noted that after the defeat against Man City the press had a field day but we are back on track and in good shape and Malouda has a lot to do with that.
