Perez is a combative midfielder without much technique with the ball at his feet, but extremely solid, accurate and with great marking and tackling skills. He's a typical example of the well known 'garra charrua'.  

Perez is one of the players with most caps of the current squad, with over a hundred matches played, including three Copa America tournaments and three World Cup qualifying campaigns.
