He was one of the legendary players who formed part of the squad that won promotion to the First Division in 1962-1963. The line-up of that historic team was headed by Rodri. He was the goalkeeper who made the transition to the elite. The goalkeeper committed himself to Levante in the summer of 1962. It was the beginning of a long relationship with the Blue and Whites. 60 years after that achievement, Rodri returned to Valencia to visit the exhibition DE GRANOTES, GATS I PALMERES, els orígens del Levante UD at L’ETNO. The goalkeeper went back in time to the glorious days of promotion in June 1963.
