Gustavo Rodas (born 16 January 1986 in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina) is an Argentine footballer who is currently unemployed. He most recently played for Peruvian club León de Huánuco in the Torneo Descentralizado.

Club careers[edit]

Rodas started his career in 2002 with Argentina's Primera División club Newell's Old Boys. He made his senior debut in a 4-1 victory against Talleres de Córdoba and scored the fourth goal in the match, which made him the youngest player to score a goal in the Argentina's first division.

Rodas moved to Chinese Super League side Guizhou Renhe in January 2012.[1] He was deemed as the key player of Guizhou by the team manager Gao Hongbo and made his Super League debut on 10 March, in a 2-1 home victory against Shandong Luneng Taishan. However, Rodas and his family could not adapt their lives in Guiyang, and he found it hard to find a Spanish school for his children.[2] On 7 May, Rodas had his Guizhou Renhe contract terminated by mutual consent.[3]

Rodas returned to Peru's Torneo Descentralizado side León de Huánuco in July 2012.
