Luis Enrique Rueda is an Argentine football striker who is currently playing for Gimnasia y Tiro de Salta in the Argentine 4th Division.
Nicknamed "El Condor", Rueda began his professional career at Gimnasia y Tiro in 1996. His impressive displays awoke the interest of Spanish club Extremadura, which later signed him for the 1997-1998 season. In his return to Argentina, he played for Cordoba's fierce rivals Belgrano and subsequently Talleres. His good form rewarded him with a transfer to Argentine giant Racing Club. After a year with the academia he was loaned to club Universidad de Chile just to be back in Avalleneda the following year to face Copa Libertadores 2003 with Racing. In that tournament Rueda excelled with 5 goals scored in 8 games. Gimnasia de La Plata then acquired his rights hoping to benefit from his goals, but Rueda was unable to match the performance on previous seasons. He then played for Olimpo de Bahia Blanca (2004) and later with Quilmes (2005), where he saw some action in Copa Libertadores of that year. In 2006, he moved back to Chile to join La Serena. The following season he received some offers from Argentina, and ended up signing with second division club San Martin de Tucuman before landing a job with Gimnasia y Tiro, the club that launched his football career initially.
