Norwich Career: 2007 (Trial)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth: 19/04/1977 (Douala, Cameroon)

Cameroon World Cup star Lucien Mettomo joined Norwich City on trial at the beginning of September 2007. Then available on a free transfer, Lucien began his career with Tonnerre Yaoundé before joining French side St Etienne where he helped establish the club in the French top flight during 81 appearances in a three year stint. A £1.5million move to Manchester City came in September 2001 for whom he made 30 appearances in two seasons. He then played for German side Kaiserslauten before joining Turkish side Kayseri Erciyesspor and Swiss side FC Lucerne

Lucien has won 29 caps for the Indomitable Lions and was a key member of the squad which reached the 2002 World Cup finals in Japan and South Korea. He was also part of the Cameroon squad which lost the 2003 Confederations Cup final to France in a tournament marred by the sudden death of team mate Marc-Vivien Foe in the semi-final win over Colombia.

Peter Grant said "“Lucien is out of contract and we are taking the opportunity to have a look at him. He comes with great credentials having played at the very highest level, but one thing he is short of is match fitness.”

Grant decided not to take a gamble with him but invited him back when fully fit.

Lucien then joined Southampton on trial and after two weeks, signed for them on 26th September 2007 on a short term contract until the end of the 2007/08 season. His contract with the Saints was cancelled in January 2008 due to Mettomo's inability to break into the Saints' first team. He then joined Greek side FC Veria

he is now retired
