Former Chelsea player Florent Malouda, 37, has just joined a very unexpected club

FC Bayern Muenchen v Chelsea FC - UEFA Champions League Final

Florent Malouda has become something of a world traveller since leaving Chelsea in 2013.

The winger has found himself with clubs Turkey, Egypt, and India over the years while also turning out for his native French Guiana at International level.

It's a relatively unusual career path for a player who was once a key part of a Premier League winning side - Chelsea's 2010 triumph in this case.

Malouda scored twelve and set up another eight that season as Carlo Ancelotti's side took the title by a single point over Manchester United.

It was form that he would keep up the following year, making him one of the few Chelsea players who did in a disappointing season for the Blues.

While those two seasons were the pinnacle of individual performance for Malouda at Chelsea, the Champions League win in 2012 would be the peak of his time there. The Frenchman would appear as a second-half substitute in the final as the club won the trophy for the first time after a penalty-shootout victory over Bayern Munich.

Things quickly soured for Malouda, however, and he wouldn't feature at all the following year in what would be his final at the club.

He refused to leave Chelsea despite not being wanted, exercising his right to sit on his large contract instead. He wouldn't play a single game that season and was released in the summer of 2013.

He moved to Trabzonspor after leaving London, spending a year there until returning to France to play for Metz. Again, that only lasted a single season - much like his subsequent spells as Delhi Dynamos and Wadi Degla.

And according to Sky now the 37-year-old has added another obscure team to his CV - FC Differdange of Luxembourg.

"He was looking for a club where he could train and we reached an agreement so he could give us a hand until the end of the season," said club president Fabrizio Bei.

"We have been top three for 10 years and we have played in the European Cup. We want to play in it again this year and Malouda can help us."

It's certainly a hell of a change from sitting at the top of the Premier League with Chelsea.
