Luis Enrique Capurro Bautista (born May 1, 1962 in Esmeraldas, Ecuador) is a former football player. He was known as one of the best right backs in South America and played 100 games for the Ecuador national team

He began his career in Patria De Esmeraldas (Ecuador. He also played for Barcelona SC, Emelec, Patria de Guayaquil, Milagro Sport, Filanbanco, LDU Quito, Cerro Porteño of Paraguay and Racing Club of Argentina.

Capurro won two Ecuadorian league titles, in 1994 with Emelec and in 1997 with Barcelona SC.

His large moustache and regular appearances for the Ecuador national team helped him to get recognised around South America and he got his dream to play outside of Ecuador. He joined Cerro Porteño of Paraguay in 1993, later in his career he went Argentina to play for "La Academia" of Coco Basile, but soon returned to Ecuador.

Once retired he decided to live in New York City.

But his talent was still recognized even far from his native Ecuador. Luis Capurro was hired once again to play, this time for a Latin American League in Plainfield New Jersey. He captained Cosmos Futbol Club into its Second Championship.
