Marcelo Fabián Pontiroli (born 22 January 1972 in San Andrés de Giles, Buenos Aires) is a former Argentine footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Football career[edit]

Pontiroli began his career in 1993 at Deportivo Español, moving to Argentinos Juniors in 1997, and Club Atlético Independiente two years later. Between 2000–07, he represented Belgrano de Córdoba, Club Atlético Lanús and Quilmes Atlético Club, with his first and only abroad experience in between, with only six Primeira Liga games for Varzim S.C. in a relegation-ending season.

In 2007, after 310 Primera División games, 35-year-old Pontiroli returned to Quilmes and helped El Cervecero promote to the top flight in 2009–10. He chose, however, to continue in Primera B Nacional, signing with Deportivo Merlo.[1]
