This Friday, January 12th, Lima Alliance made the reinforcement official Sebastian Rodríguez as a new player in the squad for the 2024 season. The Uruguayan midfielder is one of the most notable additions to the tight team and comes from Peñarol, a team where he finished second last season. Rodríguez, also known as “Bigote”, signed with the Blue and Whites for the entire 2024 season.
The 31-year-old footballer arrived in Peru last Wednesday, January 10, and was introduced this morning through a video published on the club's social networks. However, one detail did not go unnoticed by the fans.
What was the detail of Alianza Lima in the presentation of Sebastián Rodríguez?
In part of the footage, it can be seen that the flag that appears behind the soccer player has the word “clvb” on it, which has been interpreted by various fans as a reference to classic rivals Universitario de Deportes, as “club” does not appear .
This triggered different reactions from the fans of Universitario and Alianza Lima, who justified the peculiarity by the fact that the term “clvb” already appeared in one of the flags of the first years.

It should be noted that this flag is from the Southern Command, the main division of Alianza Lima, and is not the official flag of the Victorian team. “Welcome to the greatest, Sebastián. The people of the Alliance welcome you. With everything in 2024,” the La Victoria team published on its social networks.
