Alberto José Márcico (born May 13, 1960 in Corrientes) is a former Argentine football striker. He played club football in Argentina and France as well as representing the Argentina national football team.

Márcico made his professional debut in 1980 with Ferro Carril Oeste under manager Carlos Timoteo Griguol. In 1982 he was part of the team that won the Nacional championship without losing a single game. In 1984 he helped Ferro to win their second Nacional and was awarded the 1984 Player of the Year title.

Márcico was sold to French club Toulouse FC where he played for six years before returning to Argentina in 1992 to play for Boca Juniors where he won three titles with the club, but his career was interrupted several times with injuries. One of the highlights of his time with Boca came on June 18, 1995 when he scored a goal in a 4-2 win against fierce rivals River Plate in the superclásico derby at Estadio Monumental.

In 1996 he was offered a chance to return to Ferro, but he chose instead to rejoin former manager Griguol, who was then in charge of Gimnasia de La Plata. Márcico started his time at Gimnasia in fine form scoring 10 goals in 14 games, but then the injuries returned, eventually forcing him to quit the game in 1998.

After retirement Márcico went into coaching, he returned to Boca in 2002 as field assistant to Oscar Tabárez. He was also head coach of Nueva Chicago for a short spell. He now runs a football school in the French city of Auch.
