Saint-Etienne is Perrin’s only senior club to date and his hometown side. He now captains Les Verts and has played 227 times for the Ligue 1 outfit since he signed as a youngster in 1997.
Perrin became captain of Saint-Etienne after Julien Sable exited the side in 2007 and he managed to lead his side to the French Cup, Coupe de La Ligue, in 2013 – the Frenchman’s only winning medal to date.
