Etoile du SahelEdit
Chikhaoui became captain of Étoile du Sahel at the age of 19, which was a club record. Chikhaoui has achieved many things with Étoile du Sahel, such as winning the African champions league and being part of the squad when they took part of the international clubs championship.
Chikhaoui was signed by FC Zürich on a five-year contract on 23 May 2007.
During the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, it was reported that many clubs had scouts present to watch Chikhaoui (Manchester United, Bayern Munchen, Juventus ...). Unfortunately, after impressing at the African Cup of Nations he was forced to take time out to get a recurring knee problem treated. On 26 April 2009, he completed his recovery by returning to play for the Zurich first team. Weeks later he cemented his comeback with a goal and contributed, as a late substitute, to helping his team win and stay top in the title race.
He was part of the 2013–14 Swiss Cup winning team and afterwards signed a new three-year contract until 2017. In the 2014/2015 season he was appointed team-captain.
Al-Gharafa Sports ClubEdit
He was called up to the Tunisian national team to participate in the 2006 FIFA World Cup at the age of 19.
