Club careerEdit

Mouko was born in Pointe-Noire. He started his career at his home nation Congo, having a brief spell at Gabonese AS Stade Mandji, before playing amateur football in France. In 2003, he joined Dijon FCO and became the starter goalkeeper, achieving promotion from the Championnat National in his first season. He left the club in 2008, signing for FC Gueugnon in 2009.

In the next season, Mouko was signed by his former Dijon manager, Rudi Garcia, to play for Lille OSC. At Lille, Mouko was a reserve to regular goalkeeper Steeve Elana.[1] He made a few Ligue 1 appearances after Elana suffered a drop in form during 2013,[2] but spent most of the playing time with the B team. He scored once in the 2013–14 Championnat de France amateur.[3]

International careerEdit

Mouko was a regular for the Congo national team, appearing in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying.[4]

In 2010, during the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualification, he scored the first goal of a 3–1 win against Swaziland from the penalty spot.[5]
