"Edu" Perez will be the first player that the "Paceños" export to the European soccer.
Eduardo Perez, forward of Club Atletico La Paz, will begin a new experience in European soccer. The Sinaloa native will play for Panachaiki FC of Greece's second division; this is the first time that the Paceños have exported a player to European soccer.
As part of the purpose of finding personal and professional transformation, Club Atletico La Paz opened the doors to "Edu" Perez so that he can continue his career in European soccer and realize the dream of many Mexican players.
Panachaiki FC is a Greek club with 132 years of history. With 6 titles, it is the team that has been champion of the Second Division the most times and has played a total of 26 seasons in the First Division.
The club located in Patras, the third largest city in Greece, was the first team outside Athens and Thessaloniki (the most important cities in the country) to dispute a European competition. Panachaiki FC was the Greek representative in the 1973-74 UEFA Cup.
Eduardo Perez arrived at Club Atletico La Paz in the "Apertura 2023" scoring 3 goals in 567 minutes disputed. "Edu" played in Liga MX with Puebla, Juárez FC and Santos Laguna. In the silver category, he represented Club Atletico La Paz, Atletico Morelia, Tampico Madero, Zacatepec, Lobos BUAP and Cafetaleros de Tapachula.
In the next few hours, Eduardo Pérez will be arriving in the city of Patras to complete the medical tests and start working with his new club.
With this new opportunity, the Culiacán native forward commented: "All this gives me a lot of emotion, a lot of emotion and a lot of compromise. It's a dream I've always had. As I was growing up, the dream was gradually going down and the fact that this opportunity has come to me at the age of 30, completely revived the flame."
In addition, "Edu" reiterated his gratitude to this institution: " To Club Atlético La Paz the only thing I have left is gratitude because without their support, at this moment of the tournament, at this moment when the opportunity appears, this dream would not have been realized. [...] Not only they helped to complete the transfer and open me the doors to take this challenge, since I arrived they made me see the soccer in a very different way to how it usually is in Mexico and in general. I arrived in La Paz and I rediscovered the game, the beautiful side of soccer, what it is to enjoy, to do it with fun, with responsibility and compromise but without losing the values, to treat people well, to always dream big."
