Roudolphe Douala M'bele (born 25 September 1978 in Douala), known as Douala, is a Cameroonian footballer who is currently contracted with Lierse SK.

He is mainly a winger but he can also operate as a forward.

Football career

Douala started his professional career at AS Saint-Étienne, but did not make any league appearances for the French club, moving to Portugal when he was 20, signing with Boavista FC.

After two loans, at Gil Vicente F.C. and União de Leiria (where he first made an impact in the national championship), Douala moved to Sporting Clube de Portugal,[1] scoring five league goals in his debut season, while also helping the Lions to the season's UEFA Cup final. Never an undisputed starter, however, he would be loaned for 2006-07 to England's Portsmouth F.C. on the very last day of the summer transfer window, with a view to a permanent signing.

Speculation during the 2007 winter transfer window had linked Douala with a move away from the club, with the player reportedly frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities at Fratton Park. A move never materialized, however, and Douala recently revealed that "On the last day of the transfer window two clubs were calling me all day, but I said 'I want to stay'".

He returned to Sporting when his loan contract ended and, on 14 July 2007, rejoined old club Saint-Étienne for an undisclosed fee.[2]After only one season where he appeared sparingly, Douala left for FC Asteras Tripolis in Greece.[3]A fruitless spell soon followed and, after agreeing a release from his contract, he signed with English club Plymouth Argyle on 22 March 2009, for the remainder of the 2008-09 campaign,[4][5]making his debut as a substitute in the Pilgrims' 4-0 home win against Coventry City, on 11 April. However, he was unsuccessful in securing a long-term contract, and was released. On 15 March 2010 Lierse SK signed the Cameroonian 31-year old forward as free agent.[6]
