Born in The Cameroon, Louis Paul M'Fédé began his footballing journey with Canon Yaoundé, one of the shining clubs in his native country. This left-sided attacking midfielder joined Stade Rennais during the 1982/1983 season. He would mostly be deployed as a striker in the Red and Blacks' squad, but he would not be given much gametime in his first two seasons. As of the 1984/1985 season, he was able to demonstrate his talent on a more regular basis, making over 40 starts in a season where he finally became a first-choice player for Rennes. Unfortunately, owing to a lack of efficiency in front of goal, he was banished to the Reserves for the two seasons which followed, making just the odd appearance with the First Team. He was eventually released from his contract in 1987. In the following years, he returned to his native Cameroon, to play for Canon Yaoundé between 1999 and 1994, notably helping his side to win the Cameroon League Title in 1992 On the international front, he was awarded 66 caps for the "Indomptable Lions" between 1984 and 1994, participating in the World Cups in 1990 and 1994, also winning the African Cup of Nations in 1986 and 1988. He decided to hang up his boots in 1995, went into coaching in his home country. He passed away on 10th June 2013 aged just 52.
