Veron announces return to football

Currently President of the Argentine ckub, 41-year-old legendary midfielder Juan Sebastián Verón is to come out of retirement to play for boyhood club Estudiantes.

The former Manchester United and Chelsea star retired in 2014 but promised to play in the Copa Libertadores if supporters bought 65 per cent of the boxes at the club’s new stadium.

It will technically be his fifth spell as an Estudiantes player. He was filmed back in training earlier this week ahead of his January return.

“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.”
