While Étienne Capoue likes nothing better than to watch NBA and Sebastian Prödl can be found visiting galleries and museums in London, Pereyra takes his work home with him.
“I just constantly watch football, mainly England, Spain, Italy and Argentina,” he said. “If I'm at home and there is a Dutch game on I will watch that.”
He will also watch footage of his idol Ariel Ortega, the Argentine schemer who he played with at River Plate.
“It is amazing to play with your idol. I grew up looking at him and then you are sitting next to him and learning a lot from him. He had an incredible influence on my career.”
Pereyra can also tell his young son when he's older that he had the thrill of playing with Lionel Messi, arguably the greatest of them all.
“There are no words to describe him,” says Pereyra. “No-one can understand what goes through his head and what he does. It is just beautiful watching him train let alone playing with him. Unless you are there you just can't describe it. He leaves me speechless.”
Pereyra has won ten caps for Argentina, the last coming nearly three years ago against Adrian Mariappa's Jamaica.
“Representing the national team is a unique feeling,” he said. “There is a sensation of feeling of pride, happiness, amazing just being there next to some incredible players. It was the pinnacle for me. It's one of my personal objectives to play again. I will put dedication in game in and game out and hopefully it will happen. If not for the World Cup, then maybe the next year. My aim is to go back and represent the national team again.”
And to do that, he'll have to be pulling up trees for the Golden Boys. What a prospect that is.
