Sesa started his career in Switzerland playing for FC Zürich and FC Baden before having his breakthrough during his stint at Servette Geneva. In 1998, he moved to Italy to join Serie B club Lecce, winning promotion to Serie A on his first season. His second season in Italy gained him interest from Napoli, who signed him for 16 billion Italian lira in 2000. His stay at Napoli however turned out to be rather unimpressive, and he suffered relegation with his club on his first season with the Azzurri. He was released by Napoli in 2004, after the club folded due to financial troubles, and returned to Switzerland to play for FC Aarau. In 2005, he returned to Italy, playing in the lower professional tiers with Palazzolo, SPAL and Rovigo before retiring in 2010.
Sesa has played for the Switzerland national football team and was a participant at the 1996 UEFA European Championship.
Style of play
Sesa was capable of playing as a right winger or as a second striker, and was considered a fast and elegant forward, despite his lack of particularly notable physical attributes. He was also an accurate free kick taker.
Sesa took his first head coaching job in 2012 as new boss of Swiss Challenge League club FC Wohlen. He was removed from managerial duties in February 2014 due to poor results and replaced with Ciriaco Sforza.
