Gustave "Gus" Baheten Bahoken (born 13 June 1979 in Douala[citation needed]) is a Cameroonian football player, who last played for Mitra Kukar in Indonesia.


Bahoken moved to Aalesund from the French team Angers SCO in 2005.[1] Prior to playing for Angers, he had spent two seasons with Livingston in the Scottish Premier League.[2]

Bahoken accidentally broke former Celtic striker Henrik Larsson's jaw at Celtic Park in an unfortunate head-to-head collision in a game in 2003.[3]

In January 2009, he was given a trial at English League Two side Bradford City in a reserve game with Scunthorpe United.[4]

International career[edit]

He was part of the Cameroonian 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished top of their group in the first round of competition, before losing in the quarter finals to Nigeria. Bahoken was part of the Cameroonian squad that went all the way to the final in the FIFA Confederations Cup 2003 in France.[5] He played only one full cap for Cameroon.[6]

Personal life[edit]

His younger brother Stéphane Bahoken plays for OGC Nice on youthside.
