He has been described by former Cameroon and Democratic Republic of the Congo coach Claude Le Roy as being "the next Samuel Eto'o", whom he picked for the 1998 World Cup in France as a 17-year-old.
Mputu joined TP Mazembe in 2002, and has been a pivotal figure in the club's success ever since. In 2007, he helped his club reach the African Champions League by becoming the top goalscorer of the competition with nine strikes, and the Confederation Cup.
In July 2016, Mputu rejoined his old club TP Mazembe.
Suspension & Return
In August 2010, Mputu received a 12-month global ban following his aggressive actions toward a referee during a match between TP Mazembe and Rwandan army side APR FC. Upon his return to action after a year on the sidelines, it took him just 46 seconds to find the net for his club against rivals TS Malkesa.
Mputu made his international debut in 2004 and has been a regular in the squad ever since. He represented his country at the 2006 African Cup of Nations tournament, and is the current captain of the Congolese national team, leading the side in the 2013 African Cup of Nations tournament in South Africa. In their first game of the tournament, Mputu scored for the Congolese in the 2-2 draw against pre-tournament favourites Ghana.
He was recalled to the national team in November 2018, following a five-year absence.
