Club careerEdit

In 1997, after playing some amateur football in Cameroon, Tchuisse moved to Russia. After unsuccessfully trying to get into a university in Krasnodar, Tchuisse was spotted by the coach of an amateur side "Neftyannik", from the nearby Goryachy Klyuch, while playing football with his friends. Less than half a year later, his impressive displays for the Krasnodar Krai team, at an exhibition event, earned him his first professional contract and a move to the Russian Top Division (as it was known at the time) side Chernomorets Novorossiysk.[1]

During his time at Novorossiysk, Tchuisse received a career-threatening injury, after a bad challenge by Valery Kechinov. Tchuisse recovered and soon signed for the league champions Spartak Moscow.

With Spartak, the Cameroonian won two domestic league titles. In 2000, Tchuisse made his European debut in the UEFA Champions League. Tense relations with his teammates, however, forced the player to look for a move away. Tchuisse was linked with a possible move to RC Lens, but no deal ever materialized and the player, eventually, returned to Chernomorets Novorossiysk. After the club's relegation to the Russian First Division, Tchuisse received an offer from the newly formed ambitious FC Moscow.[1]

During his three-year spell at the Moscow club, Tchuisse scored his first professional goal. His two goals for FC Moscow still remain his only goals scored for a professional club.

In 2007 and 2008, he played for FC Terek Grozny and FC Vityaz Podolsk respectively.

Tchuissé currently resides in Le Mans, France. There he coaches a local team, Le Mans villaret, and has business in Cameroon.[2]

International career and trophiesEdit

Tchuissé obtained Russian citizenship in 2000 after meeting with Vladimir Putin and was a candidate to play for the Russia national team.[3] He even participated in team training.[4] However, he has not played for Russia and debuted for Cameroon on 6 May 2001.

He won during his career two championship of Russia (2000,2001) and a cup of Russia 2003.[5]
