Early Life & Education

Souleymane Sané, a well-known retired Senegalese former professional footballer, was born on February 26, 1961, in the vibrant city of Dakar, Senegal. Coming from a background of diplomatic parents, he relocated to France at the tender age of four. 

Although his parents’ identities remain undisclosed to the general public, they can be referred to as Mr. and Mrs. Sané. Unfortunately, there is no available information regarding Souleymane‘s siblings. 

With his religion being that of a Muslim, Souleymane Sané‘s educational background remains a mystery as well.


As a talented athlete, Souleymane Sané was eligible to be stationed near his home for military service in 1982. However, since he was away on vacation during that time and unable to reach his parents, the required documents from the FFF were not submitted on his behalf. Consequently, Sané missed out on this opportunity and was assigned to serve in Germany.

He played football part-time for FV Donaueschingen in Germany, where he caught the attention of SC Freiburg, a team in the 2. Bundesliga. In 1985, Souleymane Sané made his first appearance for Freiburg and had an impressive season in 1987–88, scoring 21 goals in 33 games. His contributions played a crucial role in helping the club secure promotion to the Bundesliga.

After his successful stint at Freiburg, Sané decided to continue his football journey and joined 1. FC Nürnberg in 1990. During his time there, he showcased his goal-scoring abilities again, netting an impressive 12 goals in just 28 appearances. 

However, Souleymane Sané‘s hunger for success didn’t stop there, as he made another move the following year to Wattenscheid 09. At Wattenscheid, Sané continued to impress, scoring a remarkable 26 goals in 52 appearances for the club.

Sané decided to transfer to FC Tirol Innsbruck in Austria in 1994. He showcased his talent by becoming the leading goal scorer in the 1994–95 season of the Austrian Bundesliga, netting an impressive total of 20 goals. After his successful stint, he briefly returned to Wattenscheid for two seasons before making another move back to Austria, this time joining Linz.

After playing for Schaffhausen in Switzerland for two years, Souleymane Sané decided to retire from professional football. This move surprised many, considering he was only 33 years old then. However, it seemed that Sané had achieved everything he had set out to accomplish in his career and was ready to transition into a different phase of his life.
