Cristo Marrero Henríquez (born 10 November 1978), known simply as Cristo, is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a forward.

He played six seasons in Segunda División with Tenerife, going on to appear in 173 official games.

Football career[edit]

Born in San Miguel de Abona, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Cristo started playing football at local club UD Las Zocas, where he stayed for 17 years, never making it past the fourth division during his four seasons as a senior.

In the 2001 summer, Cristo signed with Canary Islands neighbours CD Tenerife, but still went on to spend a further two years with the reserve side. He made his second level debut on 31 August 2003 against Deportivo Alavés, and went on to become captain.

After appearing sparingly in the 2008–09 campaign as Tenerife eventually returned to La Liga after seven years (15 games, only one start and 174 minutes of action, one goal scored[1]), Cristo moved teams but stayed in his native region, signing with Universidad de Las Palmas CF in division three.[2] After two seasons the club folded, and the 32-year-old returned to Las Zocas.[3]

In June 2012, Cristo retired from football and started a coaching career, beginning as an assistant with Tenerife B.[4]
