The Alianza Lima defender saw a red card in his first official game with the intimate club. As he left the field, he made a hand gesture that angered the rivals.
Central defender Carlos Zambrano had a bittersweet debut Alliance of Lima, because although he won the classic against Universitario de Deportes, he was sent off at the last minute. The defender delivered a very hard kick to Piero Quispe, for which Judge Augusto Menéndez did not hesitate to show him the direct red. Resigned after the referee’s decision, ‘León’ slowly left the pitch of the Monumental stadium, but before leaving he made a controversial gesture with his hands as a provocation to the Creme fans.
The TV show’s cameras caught the “Kaiser” forming an upside-down “U” with his fingers in response to fans’ boos. The footballer performed this action for a few seconds before leaving the field.
Aside from being sent off, Zambrano made an acceptable debut for ‘Chicho’ Salas’ team with good point attacks throughout the 90 minutes, such as the momentum in midfield to stop Martín Pérez Guedes in the early stages.
However, he ended up losing the papers to Quispe’s play, whom he suspended to take the ball away but with excessive force that left the young midfielder sore on the pitch. With this red card, the Chalaco misses Alianza Lima’s next game against César Vallejo in Matute on matchday 6 of the Apertura tournament.
This was Carlos Zambrano’s expulsion
With this result, Alianza adds six units and ranks seventh overall. For its part, the “U” stayed in the ninth box with three points.
