Marlin Kikeba Piana (born July 17, 1982) is a former Congolese footballer.


Piana began his career in France for Troyes AC in Ligue 1.[2]

He was part of the Congolese 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished bottom of their group in the first round of competition, thus failing to secure qualification for the quarter-finals.[3]

In February 2007, he was on trial at English Football League One side Leyton Orient.

In July 2009, Piana joined Northern Premier League side Ashton United but suffered a knee injury that ruled him out for the majority of the season.[4] He left the club in September 2010.

He later returned to Ashton United for a second spell.
