Cristian Javier Nasuti (born 6 September 1982) is an Argentine football defender who plays for Vélez Sarsfield in the Argentine Primera División.


Nasuti started his career with Platense in the Argentine Primera B Nacional (Second Division) in 2001. He was spotted by River Plate and signed for the club in 2003. On November 30 of that year, Nasuti made his official debut in the Argentine Primera División in a road game against Lanús. The defender scored the equalizer in the last minutes of the 2004 Copa Libertadores semifinals against Boca Juniors, although his team ended up losing the series on penalties. Weeks later, he won with River the 2004 Clausura.

Later, Nasuti moved to Mexico on loan to play for Monarcas Morelia between 2005 and 2006, but returned to River after making 50 appearances for Morelia. In the winter of 2008, he transferred to Banfield where he made 29 appearances in Primera.

After a successful season in Greece with Aris, Nasuti stayed in the Greek Super League for one more year, signing a one-year loan deal with AEK Athens.

The defender went on to play in three different countries of South America: Libertad (Paraguay), Emelec (Ecuador) and Deportivo Cali (Colombia), winning first division titles with the latter two.

In 2016, Nasuti returned to Argentina to play for Vélez Sarsfield. He scored his first goal in a 2–1 victory against Olimpo for the second fixture of the 2016 Argentine Primera División.[1]
