Thierry Gathuessi (born 17 April 1982 in Bafoussam) is a Cameroon-born French footballer who plays for PS Barito Putera.

Career[edit]

Gathuessi joined Hibs from FC Sète in July 2007 following a successful trial period with the club. He scored his only goal for Hibs in a 3–2 win over defending SPL champions Celtic.[1] Due to his aggressive playing style, Hibs fans referred to him as "Hong Kong Thierry", after the cartoon character Hong Kong Phooey.[2]

Gathuessi fell out of favour at Hibs after he conceded two penalty kicks towards the end of the 2007–08 season.[2] He did not play for Hibs in the 2008–09 season, having been told by Mixu Paatelainen during August 2008 that he would not play for Hibs again.[2] Gathuessi was eventually released by Hibs to sign for Inverness Caledonian Thistle in January 2009, along with Filipe Morais.[3][4] He only made one appearance for Inverness, however, before he was released at the end of the 2008–09 season.

Gathuessi had a trial spell with Raith Rovers in November 2009, appearing in a reserve team match[5] and two league matches as a trialist.[6] He then signed a contract with the Kirkcaldy club during the following month.[6]

In January 2015, he was reported to have signed with Persiram.[7]
