Mouloud Akloul (born March 18, 1983 in Lorient) is a French footballer who is currently unattached.



Akloul started his career 1990 in the youth system of his local club, Lorient-Sports. In 1996, at the age of 13, he moved across town to join city rival FC Lorient. He played with his new team until 2001, eventually graduating to the FC Lorient's reserve squad.[1] After eight years at Lorient, he again moved to Vannes, and helped the club secure a promotion to the Championnat de France amateur for the 2004-05 season.[2]

In January 2007, Akloul left France and signed with MO Béjaïa in the Algerian Championnat National 2, where he spent 6 months.[3] In 2007 Akloul left Algeria to play in the United Arab Emirates for Al-Ittihad Kalba of the UAE Football League.[4]

On April 8, 2010, Akloul signed for the Vancouver Whitecaps of the USSF Division 2 Professional League.[5] He made his debut for the team on April 24, 2010 against AC St. Louis, but during the game he broke his ankle while scoring his team's winning goal.[6][7] He did not return to action until October 2, in the Whitecaps' final regular season game of the year.

The expansion Vancouver Whitecaps FC signed Akloul to a Major League Soccer contract on March 31, 2011.[8] The Whitecaps released Akloul on July 28, 2011.[9]
