Carmel Busuttil (born February 29, 1964 in Ir-Rabat,Malta) was one of Malta's most experienced football players. He started his career with Rabat Ajax and won 2 titles there. He spent 6 years playing for Belgian Club FC KRC Genk (322), four of them as captain, and finishing as the club's top scorer for three seasons. In 1994 he returned to play for the Maltese club Sliema Wanderers. He was capped 113 times for the Malta national football team and is their top scorer with 23 goals.

He is known as 'Il-Bużu', an abbreviation of his surname. After he hung up his boots he was football coach at a couple of respected Maltese private schools, most notably St. Michael's Foundation for Education. He then formed his own youth training academy, The Buzu football school. In November 2003, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of UEFA, he was selected as the Golden Player by the Malta Football Association as the most outstanding player of Malta in the last 50 years.

On a coaching scenario, Busuttil had a stint with the Maltese Football League side Pietà Hotspurs, and assisted Horst Heese, in the guidance of the Maltese national football team between 2003 and 2005.
