(born April 10, 1984 in Troyes
) is a French
footballer who currently plays for FC Sochaux-Montbéliard
. He is of Polish descent.
He is a central defender and came up through the Troyes AC
youth system. He played in Ligue 2
with Troyes AC
for 2 years, where he was rated as one of the best defenders of the league. In 2005, he signed for Ligue 1
club AS Saint-Étienne
as a free agent. In two seasons he failed to impress in the club and was loaned to Sochaux. After some initial troubles he finally found his form and now is a regular in the starting line-up. In 2008 Sochaux
bought the player outright.
In December 2008 he declared his will to play for the Polish national team
. Franciszek Smuda
, manager of Poland, confirmed that information in July 2010. In January 2011, it was reported that Perquis filed all his citizenship application papers with the Polish Football Association
and was awaiting further instructions. He hopes that all the formalities will be taken care of in the first half of 2011.
Perquis has a daughter, Paloma, and son, Leandro.
