Starting with AS Monaco, as a fourteen year-old in 1996, he progressed to the Monaco B side by the season 1999-2000 and had made fifty-two appearances and scored twice by the time he was taken on as a professional on 15th March 2002. He made four starts and four substitute appearances and scored once, as he progressed to the first team. After that his progress faltered and he spent almost two seasons back in the B ranks where he scored seven goals in thirty-nine appearances. He was loaned to West Ham United on 2nd February 2004 but made just one substitute appearance before returning to France to play with Chateauroux from 1st July 2004. There he took part in nine games and scored once. In August 2005 he again crossed the channel to join up with Brighton and Hove Albion on a two year contract. But, after Brighton were relegated at the end of that season, he was able to negotiate a release. He made thirty-four League starts and six subsitute appearances, scoring twice, and also made one appearance in both of the F.A, and League Cups. One of the goals that he scored was against Leeds United and his overall performance that day prompted Manager Kevin Blackwell to return in the close season and sign the Frenchman on a free transfer on 5th July 2006. He played regularly under Blackwell but fell out of favour with the arrival of new Manager Dennis Wise, but then won back his place in 2007-08. He left for trials with Le Havre in July 2008. He returned and played in a pre-season game at York City but was released by the club on 1st September 2008, when it became apparent he did not figure in new Manager Gary McAllister's plans. He had trials with Sheffield United and Bradford City before joining Darlington on a short-term contract on 27th November 2008 but after three starts and three substitute appearances in the League and one Johnstone's Paints Trophy game he grew disappointed at the lack of first-team oppurtunities and had a trial with Brighton and Hove Albion which resulted in him signing a contract on 30th January 2009 until the end of that season. He made five starts and had seven games from the bench before his contract was not renewed on 31st May 2009. Carole had a trial with Blackpool before signing for Tranmere Rovers on 1st July 2009 on a short-term contract. He made his debut for Tranmere on 19th September 2009 in a 1-2 defeat at Exeter City. It was not a good move as the club were on the decline and after just four League games and one in the Johnstone Paint Trophy, he moved to Brighton on 11th January 2010 on a weekly contract. He made seven starts and two substitute appearances in the League as well as game as a substitute in the F.A. Cup for Brighton before the end of the 2009-10 season. He lived in Leeds and trained there as he looked for a new club. In November 2010 he was given a trial by OGC Nice but had not made their team by the end of the 2010-11 season. Carole represented France at all levels up to Under-Nineteen and also represented Martinique twice, including one as a substitute.
