Club career

He has played in France, England, Spain and the U.A.E. before joining Norwegian team Odd Grenland in 2005. His form immediately helped Odd Grenland climb away from the relegation zone. In October of that year he was supposed to sign a contract with rivals, Vålerenga, but he did not. During February 2006 he signed a short-term contract with Israeli team Maccabi Petah Tikva but was subsequently released at the end of this period.

His career has been littered with disciplinary problems; whilst at French club Nantes he was banned from playing for eight months for lashing out at a referee.

At Sheffield United he was told that he had no future with them after his part in a 21-man mass brawl during the First Division game dubbed as the Battle of Bramall Lane against West Bromwich Albion on March 18, 2002. This game had to be abandoned as Sheffield United were reduced to six players due to three red cards and two injuries. Suffo was one of the three who were sent off as he head-butted one of the opposition players. Suffo was sent to Spanish Second Division side Numancia on loan for the remainder of the season.

On 22nd July 2008, Suffo featured in a pre-season friendly for League One side Walsall against Aston Villa. He scored in this game to add to the two goals he notched the previous week in a game against Worcester.

In November 2008, Suffo signed a pay as you play with Wrexham, making his debut as a substitute during a 1-0 defeat to Kidderminster Harriers. His first goal for the club came in his second appearance when he converted a penalty during a 2-1 win over Kettering Town.

International career

Suffo has played at international level for the Cameroon national team, won the gold medal for football at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia and played in the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan, where he was sent off in the final group game against Germany.
