Just like Stéphane M’Bia before him, Benjamin Moukandjo was lifted from the Kadji Sports Academy in Douala by Stade Rennais Football Club. In 2007, he was presented by the media in Cameroon as a potential successor to Samuel Eto’o in the Indomptable Lions side. Despite a pleasant smile and a level of humility, this striker never managed to justify his status at the La Piverdière training ground. Neither Pierre Dréossi, nor Guy Lacombe gave him an opportunity with the First Team squad. His loan spell at Sannois in 2008 was a failure. Released from the last two years of his contract by Rennes in 2009, Moukandjo signed for Nîmes, where he became seen as one of the best attacking players in Ligue 2. These performances helped him to get into Ligue 1 with Monaco at the beginning of 2010, and the Cameroon national team.
