Florent Malouda: Chelsea legend ‘didn’t know’ about his release from FC Zurich until club announced it on Twitter

Florent Malouda claims he found out about his release from FC Zurich when the club announced it on Twitter.

The 38-year-old retired as a player last year and was last at Luxembourg’s FC Differdange 03.

He then joined Zurich in February as a coach.

Florent Malouda was released from his FC Zurich contract

The club announced on Thursday morning, though, that they had released the Chelsea legend by ‘mutual agreement’.

A statement read: “FC Zurich and Florent Malouda have decided by mutual agreement to end the recently started cooperation.

“It turns out that the various projects in which Florent Malouda remains involved are not compatible with the tasks planned by the FCZ.

“We wish Florent Malouda good luck and success on his future career path.”

It appears someone forgot to tell Malouda of the news, though.

He replied: “Really I didn’t know that…??”
