Vicky Isaac Peretz was an Israeli international, and he started his journey in football in his native country, playing notably for Maccabi Tel Aviv for 7 seasons. He had a very successful spell there, winning a League Champions medal in 1977 and 1979, and the national Cup Final in 1977. This out-and-out centre forward was even top scorer in the Israelian league in that same year. Between 1973 and 1983, he would represent his country, getting to the Quarter Finals at the Montreal Olympic Games in 1976. In 1980, he left Israel to try his luck in France, joining RC Strasbourg, who had just won the Division One title. He would spend two satisfactory seasons there, scoring over thirty goals in the process. In 1982, he left Alsace to head for Brittany, and joined Stade Rennais, who at the time were trying to recruit Porfinio Betancourt, only for Strasbourg to offer them Vicky Peretz, if they were unable to attract the Honduran striker. Eventually, Rennes and Strasbourg reached an agreement for the transfer of Peretz. He would stay for just one season with the Red and Blacks, but he would be a key player in the club, finishing as Division 2 champions, and top scoring with 19 goals. In 1983, he left Brittany, and indeed France, to return home to Israel, and his former club, Maccabi Tel Aviv. He would end his career there, playing for a couple of First Division clubs up to 1987, when he hung up his boots to go into coaching. He went on to manage teams in the Second Division, and even took over the Israeli U16 national team.
