Diouf moved to Marseille at the age of eighteen. He eventually became a journalist for a city newspaper. Diouf centred his work around sport, and particularly the local football club, Olympique de Marseille. Eventually he turned his hand to being a sports agent, with clients such as former French international defender Basile Boli, and Cameroonian goalkeeper Joseph-Antoine Bell playing for Marseille. He became closely linked with the Côte d'Azur side, and his intimate relationship with the club culminated in him becoming club president in 2005. Robert Louis-Dreyfus announced that Pape Diouf would leave on 17 June 2009. He was replaced by Jean-Claude Dassier.
