I thought that it wouldn't take long for something like this to happen after Florent Malouda was banished from the first team to train instead with the under 21's and reserves.

He has kept his council up till now ever since the summer but has spoken to a Newspaper recently and has threatened to expose the details of his treatment by the club when his contract expires at the end of the season when he is "free".

A day in exile with Florent Malouda

Either unwilling or unable to secure a move away from Chelsea, Florent Malouda has spent the season in exile. He hasn't made a single appearance since the preseason and has trained at the club's U-21 facility since September.

In a recent interview with France-Guyane, Malouda said, "The details, I'm going to explode them when I'm free, but the strategy employed is to make me look like a player who wants to be paid a lot.

MALOUDA: RDM right to do what he has?

As you know I posted up the "Tweet" that Florent Malouda posted stating that he was banished to train with the U21's for the remainder of his Chelsea contract.

Since then it seems that Lyon are keen to offer Malouda a way out of the club as it's obvious that he doesn't fit into RDM's plans for the season.

DECISION TIME: FLORENT MALOUDA.

As we know we have a pretty broken up group at the moment with Juan Mata being in London with the Spanish Olympic team, Ryan Bertrand with the GB Team, JT being allowed extended time off due to his Euro2012 involvement, his court case commitments, Rual Meireles and Florent Malouda because of Euro2012 and Fernando Torres because of the same, so the group isn't complete as one and won't be until the Olympics has finished.
