Atouba signed for Tottenham Hotspur in August 2004. Although he played promising games in his first few months at the club, scoring the only goal in a win at Newcastle United, he finished the season as an occasional left-back. After only one year in London he was deemed surplus to requirements. Atouba was transferred to Hamburger SV in July 2005. In the summer of 2009, Atouba's contract in Hamburg ended.[dead link] In July 2009, he moved to Amsterdam, where he was reunited with ex-HSV-coach Martin Jol.[dead link] He joined AFC Ajax on a two-year deal. After injury problems during 2009, Atouba lost his place in the first eleven to Ajax-youngster Vurnon Anita.
In 2006, Atouba caused a stir after several rash challenges led to goals against his German club in the Champions League. After receiving some jeering from a disgruntled crowd he reacted by raising his middle finger to them, and asking to be substituted. Having been substituted he repeated his actions and then received a red card.
He was part of the Cameroonian 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished top of their group in the first round of competition, before failing to secure qualification for the semi-finals.
