Florent Malouda is prepared to accept squad rotation at Chelsea and insists he is happy at Stamford Bridge.
The French winger joined the Blues in 2007 when former manager Jose Mourinho paid Lyon £13.5million for his services.
However, Malouda struggled for fitness and form in his first season in England and was consistently linked with Roma throughout this summer.
The 28-year-old began the current campaign on Chelsea's bench, but has started the club's last two matches, against Manchester City in the Premier League and Bordeaux in the UEFA Champions League.
Malouda, though, is aware he will not always be a first-team regular under boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, despite scoring Chelsea's third in Tuesday's 4-0 victory over Bordeaux.
"For the past two matches I have been in the starting XI," Malouda told L'Equipe.
"I love to play for the club. I am enjoying it.
"But at Chelsea there are so many great players that I know everything can be questioned from day to day."
Malouda was pleased to get his name on the scoresheet as Chelsea began their European campaign with three points.
"My goal is the icing on the cake. The whole team produced a very strong performance and scoring shows our organisation and determination."
Meanwhile, Malouda is adamant he does not regret criticising France coach Raymond Domenech for playing him in a defensive position at Euro 2008.
"I don't regret my words," Malouda said. "I am a big boy, I take it on, and I know what I said."
