Lohoré Steve Ulrich Gohouri more commonly known as Steve Gohouri, is an Ivorian footballer who plays as a defender for Wigan Athletic in the Premier League.

Gohouri left Young Boys for Borussia Mönchengladbach on a three and a half year contract on 28 December 2006 for a transfer fee of €1.5 million.

On 27 January 2007, Gohouri made his Bundesliga debut against Energie Cottbus. In summer 2009, he was demoted to Borussia's reserves and was released in late December. On 12 January 2010, he joined Wigan Athletic of the English Premier League, signing until the end of the season. He scored his first goal for Wigan on 3 May 2010 against Hull City. It was an overhead bicycle kick in the 91st minute to dramatically draw the game and relegate Hull, prompting a pitch invasion at the DW Stadium.

Gohouri signed a new two-year contract with Wigan on 7th May 2010.

In March 2007, he was called up to the Ivorian national team for the friendly against Mauritius, scoring a brace. He was played in the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar in Antananarivo, scoring the opening goal in the 3–0 victory.
