Ariel Hernán "Chino" Garcé (born 14 July 1979), is an Argentine football defender who currently plays for Atlético de Rafaela. He usually plays as a central defender or right back.



Garcé started his career with River Plate in 1999. He was part of two championship winning squads before moving on loan to Monarcas Morelia in Mexico in 2003. Garcé returned to River Plate in 2004 and helped the club to win the Clausura 2004 tournament.

Garcé then had his first spell with Colón de Santa Fe, before playing for Olimpo de Bahía Blanca and Rosario Central. While at Olimpo, Garcé was banned for 6 months by the Argentine federation after he tested positive of cocaine.[1]

In 2007 he returned for a second spell with Colón.

National team

Garcé played two friendly matches under Marcelo Bielsa's coaching for the Argentina national football team in 2003. He then played a friendly against Haiti under Diego Maradona. On 19 May 2010, Garcé was surprisingly selected as one of the 23 men to play for Argentina in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa though he did not feature in any match.[2]
