Walid Cherfa (Arabic: وليد شرفة‎‎; born 19 February 1986) is an Algerian footballer who plays for French club Toulouse Rodéo FC as a left back.

Football career[edit]

Cherfa was born in Toulouse, France. A Toulouse FC youth graduate, he appeared sparingly for the first team during the 2006–07 season in Ligue 1, subsequently serving a stint with third division club Tours FC.

On 26 June 2008, Cherfa moved to Spain and joined Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the second level on a two-year contract.[1][2] On 23 June 2010, having been sparingly used during his tenure, he signed a 1+1 deal with another side in that country and category, Girona FC.[3]

In late December 2010, without having appeared in any competitive matches for Girona, Cherfa terminated his link with the Catalans and signed for Albacete Balompié, also in the Spanish division two.[4] On 16 August of the following year, he agreed to a two-year deal with Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1 side MC Alger.[5]

On 1 January 2012, Cherfa was released by the club.[6] In August 2012, he joined Kalloni F.C. in the Greek second tier.

Personal life[edit]

Cherfa's older brother, Sofyane, is also a footballer and a defender. He too played most of his career in France.[7]
