Marc Mboua (born 26 February 1987 in Yaoundé) is a Cameroonian football player who plays for Egyptian Premier League side Telephonat Bani Sweif.


Mboua, like so many other children, started to learn football on the streets of his home city, Cameroonian capital Yaoundé. In 1999, along with another 300 boys Mboua took part in trials at local club Elpida de Yaoundé. He stayed there, as part of their academy, for two years, before moving to Racing FC Bafoussam, where he spent only one season.

In 2002 Mboua signed for Mali based AS Real Bamako and began his senior career. In the 2003–04 season Mboua scored 13 times in 26 games, earning him a close-season move to Al-Zamalek in 2004.

Marc Mboua at Cambuur

In 2006, he followed the path of many African footballers to France, where he joined SC Feignies in the CFA2 division. Here he stayed for only one season[citation needed] before moving to The Netherlands, to join Eerste Divisie side SC Cambuur.

His form for Cambuur, where he scored 11 times in 31 games, earned him a place in the Cameroon squad for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, where he made two appearances.

Personal life[edit]

During his time in Egypt, Mboua met a French woman, Sophie, whom he married. They now have a daughter together, Mélissa. On 18 April 2007 a DJ by the name of "DJ Sergio" released a track entitled "Buldo" – Mboua's nickname, a song that is a tribute to Mboua, his family and concerns the obstacles in his career.[citation needed]
