Sahr Senesie (born June 20, 1985 in Koindu, Sierra Leone) is a retired German footballer of Sierra Leonean descent. He is the half-brother of AS Roma player Antonio Rüdiger.[1]


Senesie moved to Germany from Sierra Leone in 1997. While in Germany he was scouted by Borussia Dortmund youth coach while playing street football. The coach brought him to Borussia Dortmund youth team. During his first season with the youth team, Senesie was the team leading scorer. He joined the Borussia Dortmund under-19 youth and lead the teams to two junior Bundesliga titles. After several successful seasons with the youth team, Senesie moved to the senior Bourussia Dortmund team in 2005. After 24 appearances for the senior team, he had loan spells with Grasshoppers Zurich and TSG Hoffenheim. He returned to Dortmund but was released in 2008.

In 2008, he had a trial with Nottingham Forest but failed to impress manager Colin Calderwood On 15 November he signed a contract with Eintracht Trier. Two years later he moved to FC Homburg, where he spent one season, leaving in 2011 after the club were relegated from the Regionalliga West. He then signed for Wacker Burghausen, where he spent two seasons before signing for SG Sonnenhof Großaspach in July 2013. On 1 June 2014, Senesie scored the only goal in the second leg of the promotion playoff away at VfL Wolfsburg II. As the first leg had ended 0-0, this was enough for Großaspach to secure promotion to the 3. Liga.


Senesie has represented Germany, his adopted home, at various levels. He was a prominent player for the German U-20 side that participated at the 2005 Under-20 World Cup.
