Swiss side FC Zurich have today announced that they've released Florent Malouda as coach by mutual agreement.
And it would appear he knew absolutely nothing about it.
In a strange development, Zurich tweeted that Malouda had been let go and the former Chelsea man replied: "Really, I didn't know that?"
Malouda only joined Zurich as a coach in February and was tasked with training the club's forwards and younger players.
But less than two months into the role he's been caught blindsided by the announcement that he no longer has a job. Somehow, it seems the message wasn't passed on to him.
Check out Malouda's awkward exchange with his now-former club below.
What on earth is going on here?
A statement on Zurich's website 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."News Now - Sport News
