Good news for all Juan Seba Veron fans. The Argentinian is coming out of retirement to play with Estudiantes for one last season, and he's donating all his wages to the club's youth academy.

The Argentinian started his career with club – way back in 1994 –and returned there on loan from Chelsea in 2006, before making the deal permanent the following year. He retired in 2012 but stayed at Estudiantes last season, serving as director of sport.


Despite taking his seat in the director's chair, Veron kept himself fit last season by lining out for amateur outfit, Bradson. Speaking to Radio Del Plata about his decision to return to the pitch with Estudiantes, he said:

'I don't think I'm in the form of that time (in 2009) when we won the Libertadores Cup, but I'm just as motivated because I love playing football.'

He may have slightly disappointed when at Manchester United but there's no doubting he was and maybe still is a very talented player:
