Club career[edit]

Born in Paris, Sène began his career in the youth system of Paris Saint-Germain, before being released in 2005. He dropped into lower division football, signing for FC Étampes, before moving on to Germany in 2007, joining SG Schorndorf for a brief spell. He then spent two seasons with SG Sonnenhof Großaspach, the last of which was successful, with the club winning a league and cup double. His league debut came on 31 August 2007 in a 1–0 victory at home against SSV Ulm 1846. He scored his first goal in the 89th minute in a 2–4 defeat at TSV Crailsheim. He concluded his first season with 21 appearances and four goals, in the following season, Sène notched 31 assists and 22 goals, including three hat-tricks.

In 2009, Sène joined Bayern Munich, as part of the reserve team squad. He represented the first-team in a few pre-season friendlies, scoring against Milan in the Audi Cup. He was a regular for Bayern II in the 3. Liga, and was named in the first-team's squad for the 2009–10 Champions League.[1] He missed most of the 2010–11 season through injury, but returned for the following season, scoring eight goals in the first half of the season, only to leave Bayern on a free transfer in January 2012.

A month later, he signed for New England Revolution of MLS.[2] On 17 March 2012, Sène made his MLS debut starting the match before coming off on in the 56th minutes for Diego Fagundez in a 3–0 loss against Sporting Kansas City in the club's second match of the season.[3] The next game on 24 March 2012, Sène scored his first goal for the club in a 1–0 win over Portland Timbers[4] On 19 May 2012, Sène scored his first brace in his MLS career in a 2–2 draw against Houston Dynamo.[5][6] On 29 August 2012, Sène tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a 3–3 draw against Chivas USA.[7] Prior to his injury he had scored two goals. He was ruled out for the remainder of the season having scored 11 goals and gotten 3 assists, the most for a Revolution player since Taylor Twellman in 2007.[8]

On 12 August 2014, Sène was traded with an international roster spot to New York Red Bulls in exchange for Andre Akpan and allocation money.[9] Two weeks later he scored his first goal for New York in a 2–0 victory over C.D. FAS in the 2014–15 CONCACAF Champions League.[10]

On 2 December 2014, New York announced that the club would not exercise its 2015 option for Sène.[11] He joined Blackpool on 9 January 2015 in a short-term deal until the end of the season.
