Remember Florent Malouda? - He's Just Joined A Very Obscure Team
| Last updated
Remember Florent Malouda? The former Chelsea winger? Well, he's joined a very obscure team.
Malouda, 37, is fresh off a stint in India and Egypt.
His stints in Asia and Africa preceded a successful time in Europe, most notably with Lyon then Chelsea.
The French winger rose to prominence in Ligue 1 with Lyon before Chelsea came knocking in 2007. He spent five seasons in West London, winning the Premier League, FA Cup (x3) not to mention raising the prestigious Champions League in 2012.
After Chelsea, he ventured to Turkey then back to France.

And he's now joined his ninth football club during his career in the shape of FC Differdange of the Luxembourg National Division, per Sky Sports.
Naturally, it got social media talking. Here's some of the reaction from Twitter:
All the best to @realflorentm on his move to FC Differdange in Luxembourg :v:- DrogbaFan11 (@Ahmed_A_Askar) January 25, 2018
Which raises the question probably no-one apart from me might like to know. Is Florent Malouda the highest profile footballer ever to play in the Luxembourg League? https://t.co/7F4oF8THlc- Beyond The Last Man (@BeyondTLM) January 25, 2018

Malouda has actually been training with the club since October, but he's now officially penned a contract until the end of the season.
On the transfer coup, FC Differdange president Fabrizio Bei said: "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.
"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," he added.
Good luck in Luxembourg, Florent.
