Perez left Newcastle United for the Foxes this summer.
He revealed to Sky Sports: "I flew to London and had a long conversation with him (Rodgers), trying to get to know each other, to speak a little bit.
"After I walked out of that meeting, I had the feeling that it was going to be the right decision to join Leicester. Brendan is such a great manager. The way he treated me and the way he spoke to me was important in my decision.
"Obviously, Leicester is also building up a great project. It's a great team which is developing. So, in the end, it was an easy decision. If you ask me today if it was the right one, I would say so."
Perez added: "He's a great manager not only because of the pitch stuff, but also personally, you know?
"He makes sure he speaks to everyone. He tries to help you with the personal side as well as the football side. He is very aware of every detail. Nowadays, that makes the difference, definitely."
