Real Madrid's supporters elebrates a goal by Real Madrid's Brazilian midfielder Casemiro as they watch play from a bar in Madrid on June 3, 2017 during the UEFA Champions League football match final Juventus vs Real Madrid CF held at the National Stadium of Wales in Cardiff.
Zinedine Zidane's side became the first team to win the competition in consecutive seasons in its modern format thanks to a 4-1 victory over the Serie A champions in Cardiff.
Perez believes Ronaldo would be a worthy recipient of a record-equalling fifth Ballon d'Or, adding to his successes in 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016.
Casemiro and Marco Asensio were also on target after Mario Mandzukic's stunning overhead kick cancelled out Ronaldo's 20th-minute opener.More news: Real Madrid win Champions League
"But today we can say that we are a very good team and that we deserved to win the league and the Champions League".
It has been an incredible and seamless transition from player to coach for Zidane, who also guided Madrid to their first LaLiga crown since 2012 this season after replacing Rafael Benitez at the helm in January previous year.
"I'm really happy with how things have gone for me and the great year that we've had as a team", he said.
"I'm 39 but I'm still a young boy". The numbers don't lie.

Ronaldo was presented with his award by Sir Alex Ferguson, his manager when Manchester United won the 2008 final, who described honouring his former charge as "one of the best jobs I've ever had". AC Milan were the last team to retain Europe's top prize when they triumphed in 1989 and 1990.
"(Gianluigi) Buffon will still be the goalkeeper next year. Karim Benzema picked up possession and passed to Ronaldo.
But within seven minutes, Ronaldo was shaking his head with a scowl after seeing an equalizer of individual brilliance.
This time, Zidane was a spectator on the Madrid sidelines, but enjoying it just as much. The Croatian timed his cutback to perfection in the 64th to allow Ronaldo to ghost in between Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini and slot in at the near post.
