Ricardo "Gato" Pérez Tamayo (born 21 July 1973) is a former Colombian footballer. He is now president of Fortaleza Fútbol Club of the Torneo Postobón in Colombia.

Club career[edit]

Pérez began his professional career with Millonarios, where he would spend most of his playing career. After a wonderful 1993 Copa Mustang (scoring 17 goals in 44 matches), he was bought by "giants" América de Cali for an undisclosed fee. After three years at América, he did not enjoy a lot of confidence from the coach, so he returned on loan to Millonarios. At Millonarios again, he scored 17 goals in 46 matches, being one of the tournament's best players in 1997.[1]

International career[edit]

Pérez made several appearances for the senior Colombia national football team, including four matches at the 1993 Copa América.[2]
