In January 2011, without having appeared officially for Girona, Cherfa rescinded his contract with the Catalans and joined Albacete Balompié, also in the Spanish second level. On 16 August, he signed a two-year contract with Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1 side MC Alger.[2]

On 1 January 2012, Cherfa was released by the club.[3]

On 9 August 2012, Kalloni in the Greek Football League announced the capture of Cherfa, as a free transfer. He signed an 1 year contract, until the 30th of June, 2013.
