Enzo Perez’s performance since his return to Argentine football has gone from strength to strength, but his way to play on the field has shown that he has no ceiling.
On this occasion, the midfielder set a new record in the Copa Libertadores and this time it was not for winning the trophy or for being under the three posts.
The footballer from Mendoza set a surprising new statistic, as he is the player with the most successful passes in the last five Copa Libertadores, spanning from 2017 to 2021.
In total, the former Godoy Cruz, Estudiantes, Benfica and Valencia player made 2373 successful passes. That’s more than 400 more than second-placed Nacho Fernández (1922). Completing the top five are Maicom (1716), William Arao (1699) and Carlos Izquierdoz (1421).
It is worth noting that, during those years, River was tournament champion in 2018 against Boca Juniors and the following year, they lost the final against Flamengo.
Congratulations Enzo! Your performance does not surprise us because of your professionalism, and we are very proud to accompany you in your career.
