Leonardo Pérez (born 27 September 1989) is an Italian professional footballer who plays for Serie B club Ascoli.

Career[edit]

Perez began his career on youth side for F.B. Brindisi 1912 and was 2007 scouted by A.S. Bari. He played two years in the primavera team of Bari and he was loaned him later for the rest of the 2009–10 season to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione team A.S. Gubbio 1910[1][2][3]

In August 2010 he joined A.C. Pisa 1909 in co-ownership deal[4] for a peppercorn of €250.[5] In June 2011 Bari gave up the remain 50% registration rights to Pisa.

Perez was signed by Serie B club Cittadella in July 2013 in another co-ownership deal.[6] In 2014, he was signed by Ascoli on loan, with an option to purchase.[7]

In 2015 his use of the Roman salute toward Ascoli supporters, a gesture adopted by Italian fascists in the 20th century, has created controversy.[citation needed]

Pérez wore no.9 shirt for the Serie B newcomer in 2015–16 season.[8]
