Ouattara began his career in Etoile Filante Ouagadougou. In July 2008 he signed with Portugal's União de Leiria, in the second division and played his first game on August 21, against C.D. Santa Clara. He contributed with 25 matches (one goal) as the club promoted back to the top level, but appeared significantly less in the following year.
In September 2011, after spending one season on loan to C.D. Trofense – division two, less than one third of the matches played – Ouattara left Leiria and signed for Nîmes Olympique in the French third division. In the following year he moved teams and countries again, joining Bulgarian Chernomorets Burgas after a period of trial.
Ouattara made his debuts for Burkina Faso not yet aged 20, helping to a 2–1 away win against Tunisia on 1 June 2008 for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. On 8 January 2013 he was selected for 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. He played against Togo in the quarterfinals.
