Henri Belle (born January 25, 1989) is a Cameroonian footballer who last played as a midfielder for Belarusian club Belshina Bobruisk.


The offensively oriented winger started his senior career at Coton Sport FC de Garoua, before he moved in the summer of 2009 to Union Douala. After a season there, he went on trial with the Swedish club Örebro SK in June 2010.[1] He was signed on a 6-month loan next month.[2] Not being given a chance in the Allsvenskan, and refusing to play for the youth squad, his loan was terminated to mutual consent in late October.[3]

Belle moved to Croatia at the beginning of 2011, signing with NK Istra 1961. He drew attention to himself both by good games and by controversy - by being the victim of racist taunts from some supporters[4][5] and by hitting a ball boy.[6] Belle grew to be the key player of the Istra 1961 team, and, thinking that he had overgrown his club, demanded to be transferred out, linking himself frequently with HNK Hajduk Split, but in the end signing with RNK Split.[7] He scored his first goal for RNK Split in the 4-2 loss to GNK Dinamo Zagreb.
