Juan Sebastián Verón (born 9 March 1975 in La Plata) is an Argentine professional football player who currently plays as the captain and midfielder for Estudiantes de La Plata in the Argentine first division. Verón‘s career started in Estudiantes, continued in Argentina’s Boca Juniors, and included stints in several Serie A clubs (where he won the Scudetto with Lazio and with Internazionale, and a UEFA Cup with Parma), and England’s Manchester United and Chelsea. In 2006, Verón returned to Estudiantes, where he is team captain.

Verón has both Argentine and Italian citizenship. His nickname is La Brujita (Little Witch), a nod to his father Juan Ramón who was known as La Bruja (The Witch) and was also a championship winning player with Estudiantes. Usually a playmaker, Verón is most famous for his vision and perceptive passing. He compensates his limited physical speed with his considerable experience and vision.

Even many people doubt his fitness (35 years old) for playing in his third world cup, Maradona trust him as one of Argentine midfielder. Maradona’s magic at South Africa actually in Lionel Messi. But Maradona considers that Veron as a important player so he should accompany Messi. He so precious in fact Maradona don’t have subtitute player for him. Maradona only brought one pure playmaker for Albiceleste, that player is Veron. From Maradona perspective and Argentine Football public, only Juan Roman Riquelme that can replace Veron’s role. Be side Riquelme, no other player have the same level capability as Veron. Unfortunatelly Riquelme and Maradona did not get along.
