Makhedjouf was born in Ivry-sur-Seine, France, to an Algerian father and an Italian mother.[1] His father is originally from the town of Aïn Fakroun.

Club career[edit]

Makhedjouf began his career at age 6 with local club ES Vitry.[2] The following year he joined US Villejuif where he played until age 13 before spending two seasons with US Ivry. There he was spotted by Pierre Reynaud of Paris Saint-Germain and was signed to the club. In June 2010, he was part of the PSG Under-19 team that won the Under-19 National Championship, beating Monaco 4-2 on penalties in the final.[3]

On December 15, 2010, Makhedjouf made his professional debut for Paris Saint-Germain in a 2010–11 UEFA Europa League group stage match against FC Karpaty Lviv. Makhedjouf came in as a substitute in the 91st minute in place of Mevlüt Erdinç.[4] At the end of the season, the club announced that Makhedjouf's contract would not be extended and he was free to leave.[5]


On June 23, 2011, Makhedjouf signed a three-year contract with Ligue 2 side CS Sedan Ardennes.[6]

Red Star[edit]

Following Sedan's fall to the lower divisions due to financial problems, Makhedjouf was left a free agent by the end of the 2012-2013 season. He then signed with third-tier team Red Star F.C..[7]
