Alex Diego Tejado (born 1 July 1985) is a Mexican footballer playing for Alebrijes de Oaxaca on loan from Atlante F.C. in Mexico.

Diego currently plays as a defender for Atlante F.C. in Cancun. He joined the Pumas youth system at age 14 and worked his way through the ranks, made the first division team with Pumas when Hugo Sánchez commanded it. He was also a player and captain of the U-20 Mexican team in 2006, but an injury delayed his national team dream. He then played under Miguel España's leadership. In 2006 Diego was loaned to Chiapas, making his first-division debut with them. Then he returned to Pumas where worked hard to get a position, under Tuca Ferretti's leading. A highlight of his career was a goal from about 40 yards out against Tijuana; this was not only the game-winning goal, but a goal that opened doors for the young Mexican. In 2010 Diego was loaned by Pumas to Atlante and in June 2011 is officially transferred. A fast and strong player, he can play right-footed as well as a lefty. He has good field vision to penetrate with long passes.
