Stephan Loboué (born 23 August 1981 in Pforzheim) is an Ivorian-German football goalkeeper[2] who plays for German 3. Liga side SSV Jahn Regensburg.[3] He is also a former Ivorian international.[4]

Early life[edit]

Loboué played in the youth of the Pforzheimer clubs SV Königsbach und VfR Pforzheim before joining Stuttgarter Kickers in 1996.

Professional career[edit]

He started his senior career with the reserve team of Stuttgarter Kickers in the Verbandsliga Württemberg in 1999. He then moved to Wolfsburg's reserves playing in the Oberliga Niedersachsen/Bremen. In 2002, he was signed by Greuther Fürth, where he played for both reserve team in the Oberliga Bayern and first team in the 2. Bundesliga. He made his 2. Bundesliga debut on 19 October 2003 against LR Ahlen and finished the 2003–04 season with ten league appearances.

In the summer of 2004, he left Greuther Fürth for SC Paderborn 07 of the Regionalliga Nord, where he was the first-choice keeper during the 2004–05 season and helped the club winning promotion to the 2. Bundesliga. However, he only managed to make four appearances for the club in the 2. Bundesliga the following season and moved back to Greuther Fürth in the summer of 2006. He started the 2006–07 season as understudy to Fürth's Slovenian goalkeeper Borut Mavrič, but managed to win his place as a first-team regular following Mavrič's red card against Unterhaching in December 2006, making 19 league appearances until the end of the season. Despite his solid performances, Loboué was relegated back to the bench for the 2007–08 season after the club signed Sascha Kirschstein on loan from Hamburg for two seasons. Loboué only made one league appearance during the 2007–08 season in a 1–1 away draw at SV Wehen Wiesbaden, a match for which Kirschstein was suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card.[5]

But he soon came back after some bad matches of Kirschstein, and because of his good performance over the whole season 2008–09. He was also one of the reasons why Greuther Fürth as one of the leading teams was on the step to the top league in Germany, the Bundesliga.[6] On 28 May 2010, he left SpVgg Greuther Fürth to sign with Rot-Weiß Oberhausen.

International career[edit]

He received a call-up from Côte d'Ivoire after the 2006 FIFA World Cup and made his international debut on 16 August 2006 in a friendly match against Senegal, replacing the first-choice goalkeeper Boubacar Barry at half-time. He played his first full match for Côte d'Ivoire on 17 October 2007 against Austria.

He was also part of the Ivorian squad for the 2008 African Cup of Nations. In that tournament, Loboué replaced Boubacar Barry as a substitute in the semi-final against Egypt.
