Chelsea star wants a move to the Brazilian league
Malouda, who is due to play against the Brazilian national team on Wednesday night in Paris, claims he has always felt “Brazilian”.
“My wife is from Brazil, my children are half Brazilian, and my in-laws are Brazilian.
“And also, French Guiana, which is in South America, and Brazil are very similar. There’s a mix of cultures in Guiana, with a strong Brazilian community.
“When I was little, I dreamed of playing for the Brazil national team and for a Brazilian club. Having grown up in Guiana, France was far away, and so I thought I had more chance of success over there!”
Although the Chelsea winger is tied down to a long-term deal, Malouda admitted he would like to finish his career in South America.
“I would finish my career there [Brazil]. It is a challenge I’d like. Playing in England and Brazil—two countries of football—it would be nice.”
