During his time with Global FC, they reached the 2016 UFL Cup final, where they lost 3-1 to Ceres.

In the second half of 2017, Kouassi joined Ilocos United, scoring eleven goals in twenty games before leaving in early 2018. On 4 April 2018, Ulaanbaatar City FC announced the signing of Kouassi.
Kouassi has also turned out for Gokulam Kerala FC in the current edition of I-League, before they released him after an alleged conflict with the management.
