Alex Dario Aguinaga Garzon is a retired Ecuadorian football midfielder. He is one of the all-time cap leaders for Ecuador with 109 matches, scoring 23 goals. Aguinaga is known as one of the best Ecuadorian footballers of all time. On the club level, Aguinaga has played for Deportivo Quito, Necaxa, Cruz Azul and LDU Quito.
Alex spent the majority of his club career at Necaxa, whom he joined in 1989, winning 3 championships with the club. During his career, Alex was approached by many major European clubs, including Inter Milan and Real Madrid. However, Alex gave Necaxa his last word. He stated that all he needed to hear was the club did not want him and that would incite him to sign with another club, but the owners were wise enough to keep him and for over 13 years, Aguinaga defended the red and white jersey. He played for his country in the 2002 FIFA World Cup at the age of 34. Aguinaga transferred over to Cruz Azul in 2003 after Necaxa moved to Aguascalientes. He retired with LDU Quito in 2005 and is currently working with Necaxa as a sub-director of management.
