He played for a local club called Sven Ingvars AB before he went on to Jönköpings Södra IF. In 2003 Svensson joined IFK Göteborg. He had shown little talent in leading a defense, despite his old age, and also had the role of team cheerleader. In 2005, Svensson almost led the club to their first Allsvenskan title since 1996, but lost out to Djurgårdens IF in the penultimate game.
Svensson signed with Rangers on 26 May 2006 for an undisclosed fee on a three–year contract. The fee was reported to have been in the region of £600,000. He made his Rangers debut in the first match of the Scottish Premier League that season, a 2–1 victory away to Motherwell.
On 19 January 2009, Svensson signed a four–year contract with his former club IFK Göteborg. He told the Swedish media: "I'm glad to be back at home".
As of 11 August 2010, Svensson's comeback has been unsuccessful. On 1,5 season he has only played 7 games in Allsvenskan. Svensson has been subsided by other defenders and also has his fair share of injuries. Svensson stated that he felt that he wasn't at the same level like the other players when he returned home to IFK and IFK head coach Jonas Olsson said that it's never good to have such a good player as Karl outside the starting eleven, but he had hopes that Karl will get back in the old shape.
