Benjamin Moukandjo Bilé (born 12 November 1988) is a Cameroonian footballer who plays for Stade de Reims in Ligue 1, as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Moukandjo began his career in hometown's Kadji Sports Academy, joining the club's youth setup in 1998, aged 10. Nine years later he moved to France, joining Stade Rennais. In September 2008, after appearing only with the reserve squad, he was loaned out to L'Entente SSG.[1]

Moukandjo returned to Rennes in June 2009, but rescinded his link and joined Nîmes Olympique on 31 August 2009.[2] He appeared regularly for the side in Ligue 2, and later moved to AS Monaco FC on 31 January 2011.[3]

In May, after Monaco's relegation, Moukandjo was strongly linked to Liverpool,[4] but joined AS Nancy Lorraine instead.[5]

On 18 July 2014, Moukandjo moved to the Ligue 1 side Stade de Reims on a two-year deal.[6]

International career[edit]

On 4 June 2011 Moukandjo made his debut with Cameroon's main squad, starting in a 0–0 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualification draw against Senegal.[7] He netted his first international goal on 16 June of the following year, the winner against Guinea-Bissau.[8]
