Carlos Marinelli (born 14 March 1982 in Villa de Mayo, Buenos Aires) is an Argentine former footballer, who played as an attacking midfielder.

Career[edit]

Marinelli started off his career with his boyhood club Boca Juniors. He stayed at Boca until 1999 when Middlesbrough signed him for £1.5 million. He was billed as the new Maradona,[1] but he scored just four times, in games against Derby County (twice),[2] Fulham,[3] and Brentford in the League Cup.[4] He generally failed to live up to expectations, and on 31 January 2003 left the Riverside Stadium to sign on loan for Torino F.C.[5] During the 2005–06 season, he joined Portuguese side S.C Braga on a transfer, playing until the end of that season.

In 2007, he joined the Kansas City Wizards of Major League Soccer.[6] Marinelli spent two seasons with the Wizards, but struggled in his time there. He was eventually waived by the club at the end of the 2008 season. He later signed with Colombian first division team Millonarios de Bogotá.

However, twelve games into the Copa Mustang I 2009, he was released by Millonarios along with four other under-productive players. He was linked with a return to England with Exeter City before moving back to Argentina in the second division with Aldosivi.[7]

Marinelli then signed with Peruvian first division team Universidad San Martín de Porres.
