"FC Zurich and @realflorentm have decided by mutual agreement to terminate the cooperation they recently began," the tweet said.

Malouda, a Champions League winner with Chelsea in 2012, had been an assistant coach with the Swiss outfit since February and replied with "really I did not know that .. ??"

A representative at Zurich told AFP that Malouda had been informed by their president of the decision to terminate his contract, with the side sitting in sixth place in the Super League, two points away from the Europa League spots.
