Sekou Cissé (born 25 May, 1985 in Dabou) is an Ivorian football striker who plays for Dutch Eredivisie club Roda JC.

He began his career in his home country, but came to the Netherlands under the advise of fellow Ivorian, and Cote d'Ivoire international striker Arouna Koné in 2004, who was playing for Roda at the time. Following the departure of Koné to PSV Eindhoven in 2005, Cissé had an increased role in the Roda team, noted for his speed.

In 2006, it was reported that Louis van Gaal, coach of fellow Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar was interested in signing him, as part of an exchange deal with Adil Ramzi. Roda, however, refused to negotiate, stating that they wanted to keep him in their team.

He was called up for the Cote d'Ivoire preliminary squad for the 2008 African Cup of Nations competition to take place in Ghana.

He competed in the 2008 Toulon Tournament for the U-23 Cote d'Ivoire team which which placed third. Cissé was top scorer of the tournament with four goals.
