Chelsea winger Florent Malouda is confident that Andre Villas-Boas will become "a great coach" despite getting fired by the Blues earlier this month.
The Portuguese was appointed the manager of Chelsea last summer following a Treble-winning season with Porto, but he failed to live up to expectations at Stamford Bridge and was dismissed by club owner Roman Abramovich.
Malouda, though, is confident that the 34-year-old will prove himself once again at a new club.
"He is a nice person, honest, who already won titles and who will win others because he will become a great coach," he said in an interview with TV channel Canal+.
Italian giants Inter Milan are said to be interested in appointing Villas-Boas as their coach at the end of the season in place of Claudio Ranieri.
