On October 3, 1981 he came there in the league game against his former community, the BSG EAB Lichtenberg 47, for the first use for the 1st team of the 1. FC Union, which ended with a 6-0 victory for the Köpenicker. At the end of the season Union had achieved promotion to the GDR Oberliga, in which Ksienzyk was involved with 13 point and all eight promotion round games . In his first league season 1982/83 , Ksienzyk fought for a regular place in the team as a right defender with 23 of 26 point games.

At the BFC, the flagship (soccer) club of the Dynamo sports association and in particular Erich Mielke's Ministry for State Security , he took over his regular position on the right-wing defensive side from the resigned Michael Noack , which he was able to maintain as a regular player until 1991 and so a total of 160 top division games in his Account could record. While he scored a goal in these 206 matches in the East German House of Lords, the defensive player went away empty-handed in 17 European Cup games , all for the Weinroten .

Between the 2nd Bundesliga and Bundesliga

At BFC or FC Berlin, as the club was called after the political change in 1989 , Ksienzyk played until the end of the 1990/91 season. From 1985 to 1988 he was involved in four championship titles and in the cup wins of 1988 and 1989 . When FC Berlin could not qualify for paid football in 1991, Ksienzyk moved to the 2nd Bundesliga for the West Berlin club Blau-Weiß 90 Berlin , where he continued to play 15 point games as a defender between the 18th and 32nd matchdays. When the club had to file for bankruptcy in 1992, Ksienzyk joined the second division Wuppertaler SV , where he played 83 point games within two years. In the summer of 1994 he received an offer from Bundesliga club FC Schalke 04 and moved to the Bundesliga for the 1994/95 season.

In the mid-1980s, Ksienzyk was one of the squad of the Olympic selection , with which he took part in the Nehru Cup in India in 1986 and 1987 .

Almost a year later, on September 23, 1987, he made his hoped-for debut in the senior national team . Coach Stange tested him in the GDR international match against Tunisia in a 2-0 win in Gera on his regular position as a right defender.
