Chelsea winger Florent Malouda has moved quickly to reassure fans he is happy at the club.
His comments come after media reports earlier this week suggested he was unhappy at the club.
But Malouda says this could not be further from the truth and insists he is enjoying his life at Chelsea.
Speaking to Chelsea TV, the Frenchman, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Lyon for £13million in July, said: "I just want the fans to know that what I saw in the paper this morning is exactly the contrary to what I said to the French paper and the French people.
"One thing I tried to speak about is that I achieved a good adaptation in my new club, and I was speaking about London life.
"My family and kids are very happy here, and when I saw that this morning I was very disappointed.
"I have nothing more to add or to say about this, this is not true, and I just want the Chelsea fans to know that I really enjoy my new life."
Malouda, who is currently out with a knee injury, added: "The way they did it was not fair. I don't know why they tried to make me appear like somebody who is not happy here.
"I repeat I chose to come here, and everybody here is happy with what I've done."
His comments setting the record straight come after he was reported to have branded English football 'brainless' and describing training sessions as 'terrifying'.
Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack played 80 minutes in a reserve team win over Southend, as he continues on his road to recovery.
The German has been out of action with ankle problems since April and has undergone two operations.
