The force behind AFC Leopards coach Rodolfo Zapata’s charming smile and impressive performances at the football club has been revealed.

And this is none other than Alejandro Moraco, his equally charming wife.

In Nairobi, the ever-smiling ‘Ale’, as she is commonly referred to, is always attending Leopards matches to support her husband.

The couple has also been spotted at various entertainment joints in Nairobi, including the famous Kiiza Lounge.

The two also attended last weekend’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match between Kenya and Ghana at Kasarani stadium.

Zapata’s schedule means the couple always have packed suitcases. So far the couple has lived in the USA, South Africa, Nigeria and Botswana where the coaching job has taken Zapata to at various stages of his career.

In a recent interview, she said she always ‘makes time’ to provide support for her husband despite the busy schedule.

“Every woman wants to be with their husbands but sometimes our professions deny us that desired opportunity. I was busy with my fashion activities in Punta Del Este (Uruguay) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). But we were always in touch daily via WhatsApp and FaceTime,” she said.


Botswana Unplugged describes Ale as a beautiful, classy, and elegant woman is an inspiration to fashion as a former model, actress and successful businesswoman.

The seasoned model has also lived in Hollywood in the USA for three years and later on set the international fashion ramps on fire with her sizzling modeling prowess.

She has also appeared on various international fashion magazines such as the LA fashion magazine, Elle as well as ‘slaying’ top fashion shows in and around Europe.

“I started my career as model and actress in Argentina. As an actress I worked in the movie Evita, and then I also worked on television, modelling and everything related to the fashion industry. That’s me in a nutshell, I have a knack for fashion,” she said.

She also had words for advice for upcoming models.

“(Watch your) Diet and exercise. Healthy food is fundamental. That includes fruits and vegetables. I also do daily exercises like yoga, spinning and adventure sports such as hiking,” she says.
