Former Manchester United, Argentina midfielder Veron set to make shock return to professional football with Estudiantes


Juan Sebastian Veron retired in 2014 after a successful career which included stints with the likes of United, Inter and Lazio, plus 73 international caps.

Now the chairman of boyhood club Estudiantes, the 41-year-old is set for a surprise comeback.


“He told us he wants to return, that from January he will return as a player,” midfielder Israel Damonte told La Oral Deportiva.

“He will play from January for the tournament [league] and Copa [Libertadores in 2017].”

Veron had previously promised to play next year’s Libertadores if supporters bought 65 per cent of the boxes at the club’s new stadium.
