Wolfgang "Paule" Seguin (born 14 September 1945) is a former East German football player.

Seguin took up playing football in his hometown of Burg in 1953. He spent ten years with Einheit Burg, playing an attacking role. In 1963 he transferred to SC Aufbau Magdeburg, where he would play 380 Oberliga matches until ending his career in 1981. He also played 23 matches in the second-tier DDR-Liga. Seguin does not only hold 1. FC Magdeburg's record for most league appearances at 403, but with 57 European matches and 69 FDGB-Pokal appearances, he is the club's record player there as well. Altogether, Seguin played 529 competitive matches at 1. FC Magdeburg. Seguin holds another record, appearing in 219 Oberliga matches in a row between 1971 and 1979.

In the 1974 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup Final Seguin decided the match, scoring the game's second goal against holders AC Milan and leading 1. FC Magdeburg to the title. Three Oberliga championships and six FDGB-Pokal victories complete his titles with the club side.

From 1972 to 1975, Seguin won 19 caps with East Germany and took part in the 1974 FIFA World Cup in West Germany.[1] He also played 4 matches at the 1972 Summer Olympics, winning a shared bronze medal.[2]
