Alain Masudi (born February 12, 1978) is a retired Congolese football player.

He was part of the Congolese 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished bottom of their group in the first round of competition, thus failing to secure qualification for the quarter-finals. Masudi managed to score the only goal for Congo in the competition.

In 2004 Masudi first ventured into Israeli football playing for Bnei Sakhnin. For the 2005-06 season, Masudi moved on to play for the newly promoted Maccabi Netanya in the Israeli Premier League. During the close season of 2006, Masudi moved to his third Israeli club, Maccabi Haifa and in the 2007-08 season he played in F.C. Ashdod and Maccabi Tel Aviv.

On 26/06/2008 he decided to join Daniel Jammer's Maccabi Netanya after having troubles with officials from Maccabi Tel Aviv. On 29/7/2008 he was released from the team after he requested to extend the contract.

On 12/9/2008 Masudi agreed on a one-year-contract with Maccabi Herzliya from the second league. Masudi will reunite with Eyal Lahman, the man who brought him to Israel four years ago to Bnei Sakhnin.

On 30/7/2009 Dalian Shide signed Masudi with a contract worth $330,000 for a season and a half.

On July 2010 he returned to Israel and agreed again on a one-year deal with Herzlyia in the second league.

On June 2011 he made his return to the Israeli Premier League as he will be a part of the newly promoted Ironi Nir Ramat HaSharon in their debut season in the top flight.
