Khaled Al-Rashidi (Arabic: خالد الرشيدي‎‎; born 20 April 1987) is a Kuwaiti goalkeeper who is currently playing for Al-Salmiya, having left Nottingham Forest in January 2014.

Al-Rashidi began his senior career with Al Tadamon in 2005, having progressed through the club's youth ranks, before switching to Tatran Presov in 2008. Unable to break into the first team, and having only made ten league appearances, he switched to Al Salibikhaet in 2010, but made just two league appearances before moving once more to Al Arabi SC that year. After 104 league appearances as the first team in 2 and a half seasons he won the Kuwait Crown Prince Cup and Kuwait Super Cup and had 1 goal vs Kuwait SC, he moved to England in 2013 when he joined Nottingham Forest F.C. from Kuwaiti club Al-Arabi SC (Kuwait).


Career in Kuwait[edit]

He scored a goal in a Kuwaiti Premier League for Al Arabi against Al Kuwait.[1]

Nottingham Forest[edit]

In July 2012, Al-Rashidi joined Nottingham Forest on a month-long trial. Nottingham Forest put in a work permit application for Al-Rashidi along with two other Kuwait players but they were all turned down on August 23, 2012.[citation needed]

On 16 January 2013 it was announced by Nottingham Forest chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi that a second work permit application had been successful and that Al-Rashidi had signed for the club. He was named as a substitute against Birmingham City on 2 February 2013.[citation needed]

On 15 January 2014 Al-Rashidi left Nottingham Forest.[2]
