He was elected Footballer of the Year in Belgium in 1999, when he won the Belgian Championship as a striker with Racing Genk, scoring 17 goals during the season. He then went on to play for Fenerbahçe SK (Turkey), UD Las Palmas (Spain), Stoke City (England), K. Beringen-Heusden-Zolder and C.S. Visé (both Belgium).
Oularé signed for Stoke City in England in 2002. After his only league game for Stoke against Northampton Town in 2002 Oulare was diagnosed with a life-threatening blood clot in his lungs. He returned for the 2nd leg of the play-offs against Cardiff City and made a vital contribution. He came on after 71 minutes replacing Chris Iwelumo with Stoke 2–1 down, James O'Connor scored in the 88th minute to send the tie into extra time and then in the 115th minute an O'Connor free-kick was deflected in off Oularé's backside. This went down in folklore among Stoke City fans as they won the tie 3–2 and went on to win promotion. He never got a chance the following season and was released in 2003.
