Ladislas Douniama (born 24 May 1986 in Brazzaville[3]) is a French-Congolese football player who is currently playing for French Championnat National 2 team US Granville.

Club Career[edit]

Douniama made his senior debut for Nîmes Olympique in Championnat National on 18 December 2004, as a late substitute in a 0–0 away draw at Valenciennes.[4] He scored his first senior goal on 18 February 2015, in a 3–1 home win against Evian Thonon Gaillard F.C..[5] After two seasons with the club he signed for US Orléans in Championnat de France Amateur during the summer of 2006 in order to get more playing time and progress his career.[6]

After three seasons he joined Lille OSC in the summer of 2009, signing amateur terms to play with the B side still in Championnat de France Amateur, but with the hope that he could progress into the professional group.[7]. The professional contract did not materialise at Lille, but on 10 June 2010 he signed a two-year professional deal with Championnat National club EA Guingamp.[8]

Douniama made his professional debut for Guingamp as a second half substitute on 6 August 2010 in the 1–0 victory over FC Rouen.[9]. His first professional goal came two months later, on 2 October 2010, when he scored the opener in the 2–1 away win at FC Gueugnon.[10]. Guingamp won promotion to Ligue 2 at the end of Douniama's first season at the club, and in Ligue 2 he was soon spotted by a number of Ligue 1 clubs.[6] On 27 January 2012 he joined FC Lorient of Ligue 1, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract.[11]

Having made only 6 league appearances in his first season with Lorient, lack of playing time saw Douniama join AC Arles-Avignon in Ligue 2 on loan for the 2012–13 season.[12] The loan was terminated early in January 2013, as Douniama signed a two-and-a-half-year contract to return to Guingamp,[13] where he contributed to the club's promotion to Ligue 1.

During his two years in the top division with Guingamp, Douniama experienced winning the 2014 Coupe de France Final (as an unused substitute) and playing in the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League.[6] At the end of his contract in the summer of 2015 he left Guingamp, and on 10 September 2015 he signed a two-year contract with RC Strasbourg in Championnat National. The club was champion of the division at the end of the 2015–16 season, but Douniama was not in the plans of the coach the following season, and on 22 September 2016 it was reported that he had joined Saudi Arabian side Al Khaleej.[14]

By January 2017, Douniama was back in France, where he signed a contract until the end of the season with Championnat National side AS Lyon-Duchère. At the end of the season he was released, and in July was part of the UNFP FC team (a team formed of professional players who are out of contract and looking for a club) that faced Ligue 2 side Chamois Niortais F.C..[15] In late September 2017, Douniama signed a contract with Championnat National 2 side US Granville.[16]

International career[edit]

Douniama made his international debut for the Congo national football team on 8 June 2008 in Republic of the Congo versus Sudan, a qualification match for the 2010 World Cup. His first international goal came in a friendly in Angola on 14 November 2014.[17]
