Born in Gorky, Soviet Union, Cheryshev began his professional career with FC Khimik Dzerzhinsk in the third division, joining FC Lokomotiv Nizhny Novgorod in the second level in 1990. He played four seasons in the Russian Premier League with FC Dynamo Moscow, helping the capital club to two top-three finishes and winning the 1995 Russian Cup.

During two years, Cheryshev worked as a manager with Real Madrid, being in charge of one of its children's teams.
