ServetteBorn to a Spanish father, Julián Senderos, and a Serbian mother, Zorica Novaković, Philippe came up through the youth team set up at Swiss club Servette.
ArsenalSenderos signed for Arsenal in December 2002, though he remained working at Servette until the following summer. During the 2005–06 season Senderos scored his first Arsenal goal in a 2–1 loss to West Bromwich Albion, and again in a 7–0 win over Middlesbrough. He produced some fantastic performances in Arsenal's run to the final of the Champions League in 2005-06, but towards the end of his career at the club his performances became more and more erratic. He was often seen by fans and media to be the blame of Arsenal's defensive woes.
A.C. MilanSenderos fell out of favour with Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger. In August 2008 Senderos joined Italian club Milan on a season-long loan. He quickly picked up an injury and struggled to make the first team ahead of Paolo Maldini and Kakha Kaladze, but finally made his first full appearance for the Rossoneri in a UEFA Cup Group Stage tie against Portuguese side Braga, and came on as a substitute for his first Serie A appearance against Fiorentina, after half the season had gone. Senderos made fourteen appearances in Serie A for Milan before returning to Arsenal.
EvertonSenderos made only two appearances for Arsenal in 2009–10, both in the League Cup, and in January 2010 joined Everton for the remainder of the season, and wore the number 23, vacated by the departure of Lucas Neill. He made his first appearance for the club in a 1–0 win away against Wigan Athletic. He returned to Arsenal at the end of the season having made only three appearances for Everton (two in the Premier League and one in the Europa League).
FulhamIn June 2010, Senderos signed a three-year deal with Fulham on a free transfer. On 9 August while training, Senderos tore his Achilles tendon. He underwent surgery and was expected to be out for 6 months. He finally made his debut for Fulham on 30 April 2011 against Sunderland. He made his second appearance for Fulham against Birmingham, helping the team to a clean sheet with a number of good tackles and clearances. On 21 April, he scored his first Premier League goal since joining Fulham as they beat Wigan Athletic 2-1 at Craven Cottage.
International careerSwitzerland, though he was also eligible to play for Spain or Serbia through his parents. He was captain of the Swiss U-17 squad that won the 2002 U-17 European Championships.
He made his full international debut in March 2005 in Switzerland's 0–0 draw against France in Paris. After playing in Switzerland's successful qualifying campaign, he was named in their 2006 FIFA World Cup squad. He started alongside Patrick Müller in all three of Switzerland's group matches, managing to score a goal in the third match against Korea Republic. He broke his nose and suffered shoulder ligament damage in the match, which ruled him out of the remainder of Switzerland's World Cup campaign. Senderos was also part of the Swiss squad at the UEFA Euro 2008 finals, appearing in all three group matches as the team failed to qualify for the knockout stages.
He was part of the Swiss national team at the 2010 World Cup. In the first match, where Switzerland shocked Spain 1–0, he was substituted in the 36th minute after injuring his ankle seriously in an accidental collision with teammate Stephan Lichtsteiner. Swiss coach Ottmar Hitzfeld said after the match, "He has a sprained ankle, possibly a ruptured ligament. If that is the case, it would be very difficult to replace him."
Personal lifeSenderos is a child of Serbian (Zorica Novković) and Spanish (Julián Senderos) immigrants.
Senderos speaks six languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Serbian. His brother Julien is a professional basketball player currently with Meyrin Grand-Saconnex and the Swiss national team.
During his time at Arsenal, fans dubbed him Swiss Tony. The name came from a character from The Fast Show, and was a pun on his nationality, and similar playing style to Tony Adams.
In June 2012, it was reported that Senderos has embraced Shia Islam. An article by the Shia News Association reported that he declared his faith in Islam in the English city of Manchester, at a center dedicated to the teachings of the Ahlulbayt (A.S.).
