He amassed La Liga totals of 64 games and four goals over the course of eight seasons, representing five clubs including Real Madrid and Deportivo.
A product of Real Madrid's youth system, Madrid-born Pérez became a professional in 1994 with the B-side, before making his first appearance with the first team the next season. Whilst under contract he had a loan spell with CF Extremadura, leaving in 1997 to sign with Real Betis and later playing briefly in France for FC Girondins de Bordeaux, before signing with Deportivo de La Coruña in 1999.
With the Galicians, Pérez was a member of the 1999–2000 championship-winning squad, but only featured in three La Liga matches throughout the campaign, making just five league appearances over the course of three seasons combined. He later had loan stints at CD Numancia and CD Leganés, retiring in 2005 after one year with lowly Girona FC.
In arguably the finest moment of his career, Pérez scored the only goal in the 1998 UEFA European Under-21 Championship final, as Spain downed Greece.
Pérez is the younger brother of another footballer, Alfonso Pérez. Both began their career with Real Madrid, and played together for two seasons at Betis.
