How’s life now for the one and only Juan Sebastián Verón
A few days ago, we wrote an article about former United player Kleberson, and what life is like now for the Brazilian. After the success in that article, we thought we’d bring you another one. This time, another player who failed to impress at Old Trafford, the one and only Juan Sebastián Verón.
Here is the player that was seen as the worst signing of all of the Premiership’s history, (or at least the Times newspaper thought so) and could not live up to his expensive price tag £28.1m. At the time, the money spent of the Argentinian was the most ever in English football. Performances from Verón were not good enough, and he ever rarely impressed the Manchester United faithful.
Now plying his trade at his boyhood club Estudiantes, in Argentina, Verón has seen change for the better. Maybe the football is a shade different to what he has experienced here in England, but Verón has been successful with the club helping them succeed in league games and competitions.
Verón helped Estudiantes gain a respectable 7th position in the Primera Division, which features the likes of Boca Juniors and River Plate, and helping them reach the final of the Copa Libertadores, which is similiar to the FA Cup.
But it’s also about the individual sucess. Named as the best player in the Argentine league in 2008 by many fellow players, but his real big acheivement has to be the when he was elected South American Footballer of the Year. For the club, he has made 30 appearances and has found the net 10 times.
