The images aroused outrage in fans and former footballers of both teams, as was the case with Adolfo “El Bofo” Bautista, who declared the following:
“ It is embarrassing to see this. This is not t-shirt love. No professionalism. This is being mercenaries, ”he declared on his Twitter, citing the photo where Oribe Peralta and Uriel Antuna are seen with Azulcremas players exchanging jokes.

The row began with a series of controversial statements made by the former Colombian Club América player, Mateus Uribe , now at FC Porto, during training prior to the match: “ The truth is that since I arrived at América, Chivas has been out of the league, always, has not been fighting anything, so for us it is more classic Cruz Azul, more classic Pumas because the truth is Chivas has always been out of the eight since I was here .
The midfielder ended up igniting the spirits of his rivals by saying that this game ” does not take away or add, we already know that America is the greatest .”
Adolfo “El Bofo” Bautista , retired footballer and former Chivas player who has been in the midst of controversy on more than one occasion, was the first to respond to the eagles player.
“ You are a dead Mateus Uribe, you are not even known in your house and you come to Mexico to be starved, trunk. Chivas is Mexico ”, wrote on his twitter account the Mexican who starred in a fight against Boca Juniors in the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores in the 2005 edition.
However, another America player came out in defense of his teammate and responded to Bautista with a forceful message: ” A player who runs less than a goalkeeper in matches cannot speak of dead, ” wrote Aztec striker Oribe Peralta , making reference to the World Cup in South Africa, when Mexico faced the Argentine National Team and the statistics revealed that Oscar “El Conejo” Pérez, then the national team's goalkeeper, traveled more kilometers than Bautista .
“El Bofo” did not take long to answer Peralta and again he issued a ” virtual hatchet “, this time against “El Hermoso”.
” My career supports me and I am not the eggs of foreigners like you. I am still alive and well happy of my retirement and without plastic surgeries ”, wrote the former player of the herd.
In the midst of the discussion between both athletes, several fans took advantage of the situation to mock the lawsuit between the players of the two most antagonistic teams in Aztec football.

It is worth remembering that Oribe Peralta defended the blue-cream colors for five years . However, the Flock fans did not forgive him, so the Aztec striker had to go out on social networks to calm things down.
“Soccer is a gentleman's sport. Every gentleman knows that the sporting duel ends when the referee whistles and should not cross that border, “Oribe wrote on his official Twitter account.
However, other former rojiblancos have defended the forward. Javier “Chicharito” Hernández and Oswaldo Alanís supported Peralta in his position that “the rivalry stays on the court”.
