Menad started his playing career with CR Belouizdad, before moving to JS Kabylie. In 1987, he signed with French side Nîmes Olympique, competing in three Ligue 2 seasons and appearing in nearly 100 official games. In 1989–90, he scored a career-best – in Europe – 12 goals in 27 games, but his team fell short of promotion after finishing in third position.
Menad spent the following three seasons in Portugal, appearing for F.C. Famalicão (two seasons) and C.F. Os Belenenses, always in the top division. Subsequently, aged 33, he returned to his country and retired four years later, after stints with former club Kabylie (where he won the African Cup Winners' Cup in 1995) and USM Alger.
Menad was selected to the squad for the 1986 FIFA World Cup. There, he appeared in group stage losses against Brazil and Spain. In 1990, he helped the hosts win the Africa Cup of Nations, finishing as the competition's top scorer with four goals.
Menad finished third for the 1986 African Footballer of the Year award.
In November 2011 Menad, who has a disabled daughter, and other of his World Cup Finals teammates called for an investigation into whether their children's disabilities had in any way to do with medication ordered to them by Algeria's Soviet coach Evgeni Rogov.
