Club career

Saenko was born in Maslovka. In August 2008, Saenko moved to Spartak Moscow due to his unwillingness to play in the second division after Nürnberg's relegation. He missed the second half of the 2009 season due to injuries. Saenko had never found himself a new team and retired in 2011.[1]

After finished second in qualifying group stage with Russia U-21 at the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, Saenko received first senior call up against Croatia on 6 September 2006 and as unused bench. He made his debut one month later against Estonia on 11 October 2006 as last minutes substitution.

He was called up to Russia's UEFA Euro 2008 squad and was a second-half substitute in both their second match against Greece in Salzburg and third match against Sweden in Innsbruck, but started the quarter-final against the Netherlands in Basel and the semi-final against Spain in Vienna. He won his 13th and final cap in October 2008.[2]
