An eagle-eyed female fan has noticed that Perez, nicknamed ‘Chino’, has listed himself as a ‘footballer for Dundalk FC’ in his biography on the dating app.


Perez, who has represented theĀ UIC Flames in America at university level, was named an All-American last month for his season’s accomplishments.

As social media tends to do, detective work quickly got underway and discovered a Facebook post from a woman who seems to be Perez’s mother wishing her son well as he set off for Dundalk.
