Djamel Menad (Arabic: جمال مناد‎; born 22 July 1960 in El Bayadh) is a retired Algerian footballer who played as a forward, and a current manager.


Club career

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.

In 2005, Menad started coaching, managing his last team as a player. On 14 May 2011, he was fired from his post at JSM Bejaia.[1]

International career

Menad gained the first of his 81 caps for Algeria in 1982. Previously, in 1980, he played Olympic football in Moscow, helping the national team to the quarterfinals.

Menad was selected to the squad for the 1986 FIFA World Cup. There, he appeared in group stage losses against Brazil and Spain.[2] 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.
