Carlos Chacana (born 23 June 1976 in San Miguel de Tucuman) is an Argentine-Israeli professional football (soccer) player who is currently contracted to Hapoel Ramat Gan.
At the age of 16, Chacana began training with Club Atletico San Martin de Tucuman after being pressured to by his grandfather. The club supplied Chacana with a pair of football boots and occasionally with transportation to training. In 1997, he played his first professional match for San Martin in a Primera B Nacional match. Slowly, he cracked the first team and started to score goals. During a league match against Club Atletico Tucuman, officials from River Plate were impressed by his play. The next day Chacana found himself on a bus to Buenos Aires.
After a short time at Quilmes, Chacana made his first departure to the Middle East. His time at Al Arabi was cut short due to the Iraq War.
