Alejandro 'Álex' Pérez Aracil (born 21 January 1985) is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a midfielder.

Football career[edit]

Pérez was born in Madrid. An unsuccessful youth graduate at local Real Madrid, his input with the first team consisted of one minute against Terrassa FC on 8 January 2003, for the season's Copa del Rey.[1] Subsequently he signed with Gimnàstic de Tarragona on loan, but featured in no second division matches for the Catalans in his sole campaign.

In January 2007, Pérez was released by the Merengues, going on to serve an unassuming stint abroad with Greece's Aris Thessaloniki FC. In that summer he returned home, joining Albacete Balompié in the second level.

After two seasons with only relative playing time in his second – 15 games, one goal[2]– Pérez was released. He played with lowly Ontinyent CF for four months, then retired in June 2011 at only 26.

Personal life[edit]

Pérez's older brother, Miguel, is also a footballer. Both played in Gimnàstic in 2005–06.

Their father, Miguel Ángel Pérez Pilipiux, was also a footballer. Born in Argentina, he settled in Spain after retiring, having played in the country for Real Madrid and Real Zaragoza, amongst other clubs.
