He started his career at homeland club ASEC Abidjan, where he came through the famed youth academy that has produced so many of the Côte d'Ivoire national team of today, before he eventually moved abroad to play in the South African Premier Soccer League for Mamelodi Sundowns. In the summer of 2005 he made the move to Europe to play for French Ligue 1 club AS Saint-Étienne, staying there until October 2006. He joined Ligue 2 side Stade Reims on loan after being unable to get a place in the AS Saint-Étienne midfield. He returned to Saint-Étienne during the summer of 2007.

Paris Saint Germain

On June 2010, he signed a contract with Paris St. Germain. He played three years for French Ligue 1 capital side. He did not return to Paris after winning the Ligue 1 domestic title in 2012-2013, with teammates David Beckham and Thiago Silva.

Montpellier HSC

On June 2013, he signed a contract with Montpellier HSC.[2]

International career

Tiéné has also played a part in the international scene for Côte d'Ivoire. He was a member of the Ivorian squad for the 2006 African Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt, where the Elephants reached the final. Tiéné was in the starting line-up for the final, but the team were eventually overcome by hosts Egypt 4–2 in a penalty shoot-out. Tiéné was the only player in the Ivorian's African Cup of Nations team not to make it into the 2006 World Cup squad. He was replaced by Abdul Kader Keïta who plays for Ligue 1 club OSC Lille. His latest international call-up was for the 2008 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar, where he started the match on the left wing. The Elephants won the game 3–0, with goals from Steve Gohouri, Aruna Dindane and Amara Diané. He was called up for Côte d'Ivoire's 2010 African Cup of Nations campaign in Angola. He was Halilhodzic's first-choice left-back instead of Arthur Boka in the first match at Group B in Cabinda on 11 January in 0:0 draw against Burkina Faso and later in the competition.
