I’m really happy to be here and cannot wait to get on the pitch and contribute to all that this club is trying to achieve,” said Perez who will the No.44 shirt.
Coach Albert Roca was pleased to have brought Perez on board as the player would add solidity to their midfield.
“We are happy to have got Victor on board for the rest of the season. He is an experienced player and will provide us with a good option as we enter the business end of the season. The ISL play-offs are at the door and we even have the AFC Cup and the Super Cup to play for, where his experience will come handy,” said the Bengaluru boss.
