Chelsea have announced that Portuguese midfielder Maniche has left the club.

The 28-year-old was a loan signing from Dynamo Moscow in January but started just five matches.

Maniche, who is in Portugal's World Cup squad, played under Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at Benfica and Porto, with whom he won the 2004 Champions League.

Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon said: "He certainly contributed to the team. We make a big thank you for that and wish him all the best."
