Career edit

Chkhetiani started his professional career at his boyhood club Torpedo Kutaisi, where he earned first medals in 2003. With Olimpi Rustavi he won Umaglesi Liga in 2009.

After four seasons spent at four Israeli teams, Chkhetiani returned to Georgia in 2013. While at Sulori Vani in mid-2010s, Chkhetiani was a topscorer of Meore Liga and a key contributor to the team's promotion to Pirveli Liga.

In 2017, he joined Liga 2 side Samgurali Tskaltubo[3] and for two successive seasons became a main goalscorer.

Merani Martvili was the last club he played for. With 13 goals scored in 2019, Chkhetiani helped his team to advance into the second division. After taking part in two games the next year, he was forced to end his career at age 37 due to some sustained injuries.[4]
