Malouda urges Chelsea to be patient

Published: Monday 15 March 2010, 13.50CET
Florent Malouda insists Chelsea FC will be happy to play the waiting game as they look to overturn a 2-1 deficit at home to FC Internazionale Milano in their UEFA Champions League first knockout round second leg. "I'm not sure we really need an early goal," said the France midfielder. "We scored an away goal so we could only need one to go through. We must have patience and keep the balance of the team so we won't be in a rush to score an early goal. We have to be clever."
