Born in Ouagadougou, Ouattara began his career in Etoile Filante Ouagadougou. In July 2008 he signed with Portugal's U.D. Leiria in the second division, and played his first game on 21 August against C.D. Santa Clara. He contributed with 25 matches (one goal) as the club promoted back to the Primeira Liga, but appeared significantly less in the following year.
In September 2011, after spending one season on loan to C.D. Trofense – second level, less than one third of the matches played – Ouattara left Leiria and signed for Nîmes Olympique in the French division three. In the following campaign he moved teams and countries again, joining Bulgaria's PSFC Chernomorets Burgas after a period of trial.
Ouattara made his debuts for Burkina Faso not yet aged 20, helping to a 2–1 away win against Tunisia on 1 June 2008 for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. On 8 January 2013 he was selected for 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, playing against Togo in the quarterfinals as the tournament ended with runner-up honours for the nation.
