Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Pérez began his career at Vélez Sársfield in 2002. In 2005 he moved on loan to Mexican club León, but returned to Argentina shortly afterward. In June 2007 he joined on loan to Chilean side Everton.[1] After another two loans at Chacarita and San Martín de Tucumán respectively, Pérez left Vélez Sársfield and signed permanently for second-tier Defensa y Justicia.

Central Coast Mariners[edit]

In June 2010, Pérez signed a 2-year deal with A-League club Central Coast Mariners.[2] Perez made his first start for the club in a pre-season friendly against rivals Melbourne Victory.[3]

His competitive debut came on 28 August in an A-league match against local rivals Sydney FC. His performance was impressive but controversial,[4] with Perez diving and subsequently winning a penalty, as well as getting Sydney FC goalkeeper Liam Reddy sent off. He converted the penalty. Afterwards, he was handed a 2-match ban for simulation by the FFA, and Reddy's sending off was revoked.[5][6][7][8]

On 23 March 2011, Central Coast Mariners agreed to release Perez from the final year of his contract on compassionate grounds. It was revealed by both the player and the club that his exit was due to homesickness.[9]
