Sarr began his club career playing at Schwarz-Weiß Essen then moved to Schalke 04 in the 2005–06 season before moving to Bayer Leverkusen in the 2008–09 season, where he ultimately succeeded to the second team.[1] In the 2012–13 Regionalliga season, Sarr made ten appearances for Bayer Leverkusen second team as a defender during the first half of the 2012–13 season.[2]

Borussia Dortmund[edit]

Sarr signed for Borussia Dortmund in the dawn of 2012–2013 Bundesliga season. The signing of Sarr by Borussia Dortmund from Bayer Leverkusen led to a large media attention, which led to a renewed debate about the "talent theft" in football.[3] During the second half of the 2012–13 season, Sarr was enrolled initially in the Borussia Dortmund academy (U-19). In the 2013–14 Bundesliga season, Sarr was inducted into the Borussia Dortmund first team by Jürgen Klopp.

Sarr debuted for Borussia Dortmund II on 20 July 2013 on matchday 1 of the 2013–14 season in the 3. Liga against VfB Stuttgart II, in which Sarr made his professional debut.

Sarr made his Borussia Dortmund and UEFA Champions League debut on 11 December 2013 against Olympique de Marseille, helping his team win 2–1 and secure a spot in the round of 16 and win their group.[4]

The defender had the first match in the Bundesliga on 14 December 2013 against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.

International career[edit]

Sarr represented the German U17 national football team that participated in the 2012 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship in Slovenia. The German U17 national football team under coach Stefan Böger won all matches of the preliminary round, and won the semifinal against Poland U17 national football team 1–0,[5] then conceded defeat in the final against the Netherlands U17 national football team in a 5–4 penalty shootout.[6]
