Hailing from the port city of Zarate in Argentina, Pereyra started his career with the amateur side Estudiantes De Buenos Aires in 2006 till 2009, before being sent on loan to Palestino, a Chilean football club, where he made his professional debut with 2 assists and a goal in 6 appearances for the side. The next few years saw the creative midfielder who can also play as a striker, shuffle between the Chilean, Mexican and Argentinian Leagues before being picked up by the Greek side PAOK, his most productive move. “Fanouris” (nickname given by the then PAOK coach) spent 3 years with the Greek side and found the net 14 times on either side of two loan moves. In 2018, the left footer joined Apollon Limassol scoring 14 goals and 3 assists in his 53 appearances (including qualifiers) for the club. Learn More About Facundo Pereyra
