Jean Marie Dongou Tsafack (born 20 April 1995), known as Dongou, is a Cameroonian footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Zaragoza as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Douala, Dongou joined FC Barcelona in 2008 at the age of 13, arriving through the Samuel Eto'o Foundation. He made his Segunda División debut for the B-team on 28 January 2012 when he still had not celebrated his 17th birthday, in a game against SD Huesca where he came on as an 85th-minute substitute for Rodri.[1]

Still in the second level competition, and still a junior, Dongou scored his first goal for the Catalans' reserves on 25 March 2012, helping to a 2–1 home defeat of CD Alcoyano.[2] He made his maiden appearances with the main squad during the 2013 preseason, netting in his second in a 7–0 thrashing of Vålerenga Fotball.[3]

On 6 December 2013, Dongou made his official debut with Barcelona, replacing Alexis Sánchez for the last 12 minutes of 4–1 win at FC Cartagena for the campaign's Copa del Rey, and closing the scoresheet.[4] His first game in the UEFA Champions League came five days later, when he featured nine minutes in a 6–1 routing of Celtic in the group stage;[5] he completed a trio of debuts on 19 January of the following year, again coming from the bench away against Levante UD in the La Liga 1–1 draw.[6]

On 22 January 2016, Dongou moved to division two side Real Zaragoza after signing an 18-month deal.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Dongou is a naturalised citizen of Spain.[7]
