Marcelo Adrián Carrusca (Spanish: [ˈmaɾθelo adriˈan ˈkarusca]) (born September 1, 1983 in La Plata, Argentina), is an Argentine professional footballer currently playing for Adelaide United in the A-League. He usually plays as an Attacking Midfielder.
Carrusca is a product of Estudiantes de La Plata's youth divisions. He made his first appearance for the club in 2001, and played 103 league games (12 goals) for the team until 2006.
On 27 July 2006 he signed for Turkish club Galatasaray, opting for a 5-year contract worth around €1.8 Million. He played one year for the club, but on 25 July 2007 Galatasaray Manager Karl Heinz Feldkamp reported officially that he did not wish to keep Carrusca on the team and asked the board to sell him in order to open space for a new foreign transfer.
After lack of first team appearances in Galatasaray, he was loaned for 1 year to Mexican Primera División team Cruz Azul for 2008-09 football season. He then re-joined Estudiantes to play with the team during the 2009-10 Argentine Primera División season and the 2009 FIFA Club World Cup.
