Kouo-Doumbe, usually simply called Doumbe, was signed in the summer of 2004 on a free transfer from Hibernian after his contract with the Edinburgh club had expired. The former French under-21 international started his career at Paris St German before joining Hibs in 2001. 'MKD' was a right-sided central defender who played frequently over his five seasons at Argyle, without ever making the position his own, and his pace came in useful when he occasionally filled the right-back position. He was Argyle’s second longest serving player, behind Romain Larrieu, when he was released after his contract expired in 2009, whereupon he joined Milton Keynes Dons and went on to make 141 appearances and scoring 11 goals before being released at the end of the 2012-13 season.
After his four-year spell in Buckinghamshire, Doumbe signed for Northampton Town where he played 34 times and scored three goals before being released at the end of the 2013-14 season as the Cobblers narrowly retained their Football League status.
Kouo-Doumbe returned to his native France and signed for Claye-Souilly, a club in Paris who play in the seventh tier of French football in the Seine-et-Marne league, one of the regional leagues below national level.
