The statement said: “FC Zurich and Florent Malouda have decided, by mutual agreement, to terminate the recently started cooperation.”

The 38-year-old, who only agreed to take up the role last month, was surprised by the statement, replying: “Really, I didn’t know that??”
Malouda won five major trophies with Chelsea, including the Premier League title and Champions League. Prior to his arrival at Stamford Bridge, he won the Ligue 1 championship four times with Lyon.
He last played for Luxembourg club FC Differdange 03 last year.
