Fernando Daniel Belluschi (born September 10, 1983), is an Argentine football midfielder who recently played for Olympiakos Piraeus in Greece. Belluschi's best position is as an attacking midfielder, or playing just behind the forwards as a link between midfield and attack - although his playing attributes are suited to a more wide position.

Belluschi started playing professionally at Newell's Old Boys in 2002, with whom he won the 2004 Apertura Championship. He moved to River Plate in 2006 and was the captain of the team for two years (2007-2008). He joined Olympiakos FC for €7.4 million in early 2008.[1]

Belluschi's career in Greece lasted two years and, in 2009, he left Olympiakos for Porto. During those two years he played in 36 games scoring 6 goals.

International career

He has three caps for Argentina as of August 2011.
