Khalilou Fadiga (born December 30, 1974) is a Senegalese football (soccer) player.

Fadiga began his career at Paris Saint-Germain in France, but failed to make an impression, and so was transferred to fellow Parisian club, Red Star, before moving to Belgian club Standard Liège.

It was there that he found the profile that was to launch his international career, moving on to first Lommel and then perennial title contenders Club Brugge. It was during his time at the club that Fadiga earned his first caps for the Senegal national side.

In 2000, the midfielder returned to France when he signed for AJ Auxerre. Fadiga ran into a rich vein of form in 2001/02 to emerge as one of the key hopes for Senegal during the 2002 World Cup. He was an integral member of the Senegal side.

Fadiga moved to Inter Milan in the summer of 2003, but failed to gain a place in the team at the San Siro. This, coupled with the discovery of heart problems meant he was released after just one season.

English club Bolton Wanderers signed Fadiga for the 2004/05 season, after he passed a medical. However before he made an appearance for Bolton, he collapsed prior to a match in October, and had to be fitted with a defibrillator due to an irregular heartbeat. Despite stating his desire to return to the game, medical specialists urged him to retire, warning that if during a game his chest was knocked the defibrillator could fail, leading to instant death.

However, following a period of rest and passing a medical, Fadiga returned to the Bolton squad in early 2005.
