which Pakistan Army has always wanted against India. how would he say such a thing about his daughter? you can turn things around.Maybe if you don’t have the (right) results the club will sack the manager But you never know in the next transfer window maybe you will be the next one out So everybody must deliver it’s a rule Florent Malouda has been an inspiration as marquee playerin the ISL Image courtesy: Delhi Dynamos During your time at Chelsea you were sent to train with the U-21s for almost an entire season As a player how difficult was it to see yourself being pushed away from the senior team despite having proved yourself on the grand stage on numerous occasions Malouda: It wasn’t difficult I wanted to go for free and the club wanted to make money on me So both parties decided that we wouldn’t carry on together But there was a contract and we had to wait until the end I saw it happen with other recognised players too and I had decided I will go for free no matter what My pride has no price In that one year I prioritised my family because I knew I had to wait long So it was really easy and the most important thing was to be respected by everybody at the football club Maybe a few people didn’t have respect for me but I had the respect of everyone right from the groundsman to the fans I accepted it but after that I proved that I was still competitive This is life but you but must have principles In the 2009-10 season you were scoring and setting up goals at Chelsea What was the spark behind that performance How difficult was it to maintain that flow Malouda: It’s not difficult Everything is about consistency When they gave me a responsibility to score goals and to assist I did that I played in an offensive role that season so people remember it I was players’ player of the year We had the same squad for a while and everybody evolved in different roles I was in goalscoring positions more regularly and I really enjoyed it I had been working with those players observing and learning and it was just my time to apply what I saw You came into a Chelsea side that had won a lot of titles before but were going through a tough phase For a footballer what creates more pressure – getting into a winning side or getting into a side which is struggling Malouda: In top clubs nothing is easy In my first five years at Chelsea we changed managers I was banned for one year (sent to train with U-21s) but we still won a lot of trophies It wasn’t like nothing was happening We won the league three FA Cups and the Champions League But there were still changes and that’s what you call difficulties In the end it’s your character that makes you successful In top clubs if you win it’s normal If you draw you’re not far from a crisis If you lose you might hear those dreaded words – "you’re gonna get sacked in the morning" (laughs) If I am a top player nobody can put pressure on me because when I step on the pitch I want to prove things Mentally you have to be very very strong And when you are like this you don’t even realise you are in Chelsea or in front of 40000 people For you all that is normal Florent Malouda handled questions with the same panache that he shows on the field Image courtesy: Delhi Dynamos You’ve lost in the finals of a World Cup and a Champions League Does a player ever fully recover from a big final defeat Malouda: It’s never easy If you lose you never know whether you will qualify for the World Cup again or play in the biggest tournament again Nothing is guaranteed You don’t know if you will still play football And it’s not because you’re old; even young players don’t realise it might be their last For me it was the last one (chuckles) so I kept thinking about it When it’s done you have to realise that it’s finished and you have to move on You just have to move on I never watched the final again I just moved on because 20 days later I had to start another season where everybody was expecting me to be the player I was I couldn’t say "I am tired" or "I’m not ready yet" When people are used to seeing you at a certain level you have to deliver And you cannot let yourself down and feel sorry for yourself In my first year we reached the final but lost on penalties In my last year I played in another final and won on penalties It’s an amazing story This is how things turn around Never give up You started off as a striker then converted into a winger a midfielder and sometimes left-back too Do you think adjusting to the demands of the team can sometimes derail a player’s career especially when you are a specialist in a certain position Malouda: Not my career Maybe some players can feel like that but I think every experience is a good experience and for me it was something that has always been a plus not only in terms of my own performance but also helping me understand the game better I’ve played under many coaches and when they talk to me I understand and apply (their tactics) very clearly I can also be a relay to the coach because I’ve played in different positions and know different aspects of the pitch I think when you are not confident you will say "Oh It might be negative for my performance" But I am happy that my ability to play in different positions help the team recuperate It’s a collective sport and I’m sure that the manager (will be happy) when he sees that you have the ability to adapt that you’re bringing him solutions instead of problems For full text of the interview click here In the wake of the Gurdaspur terror attacks on Monday Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur has imparted a warning shot at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) with his comments putting the planned Indo-Pak series in jeopardy "Pakistan need to know that cricket can’t be played if the security and peace of our nation is affected I understand a sport is a different thing but our internal security is important" Thakur told The Times of India File picture of Anurag Thakur AFP PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan had visited India recently to rally hard for the resumption of Indo-Pak cricket ties and during a joint press statement with BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya in Kolkata proposed a series comprising of three Tests five ODIs and two T20s in December The series is part of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two boards last year and will be hosted by Pakistan in the UAE However the terror attacks in Punjab might have put a cloud over the series "Cricket and terror cannot go hand in hand" Thakur told NDTV "Internal security of the country can’t be compromised" even though sport was a different issue" he added Thakur also told The Times of India that the two boards and the countries need to sort some issues out between them before proceeding Earlier former India captain and current India A coach Rahul Dravid had welcomed the India-Pakistan series from a purely cricketing perspective "From a cricketing perspective an India-Pakistan series is any day welcome But this series is more than about cricket looking at the security angle and political situations and is best left to the two Boards to decide" Dravid said at a media conference of IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals Since 2007 India have not played a proper bilateral Test series with Pakistan mainly due to political reasons particularly after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks which led to suspension of cricketing ties The two countries played one short series of three ODIs and two T20 matches in India in December 2012 but otherwise they have met only in ICC organised events or the Asia Cup With inputs from PTI Prague: Petra Kvitova will make a "last-minute decision" whether to compete in the French Open as she prepares a comeback five months after her
