<b>Age:</b> 35<br/>
<b>Club:</b> Estudiantes<br/>
<b>Country:</b> Argentina<br/>
The experienced midfielder will probably be remembered for his £28.1 million move to Manchester United and his failure to display his ability on a regular basis in England. Veron to his credit continues to dictate the midfield for his current club and country, despite his age.<br/>
Argentina manager Diego Maradona has established Veron as a key player in his side, rewarding him with the playmaker role rather than to Lionel Messi. Veron has the important task of ensuring Messi gets plenty of time on the ball despite the close marking that will be employed against the Barcelona star.<br/>
Despite his unsuccessful period in England, Veron has had a distinguished career in Argentina and Italy, winning four league titles. La Brujita (Little Witch), as he is known by Estudiantes fans, has also played for Boca Juniors, Sampdoria, Parma, Lazio and Inter Milan.
