Juan Sebastian Veron has come out of retirement at the age of 41.
The Argentine midfielder, affectionately known as La Brujita, is back playing for boyhood club Estudiantes in the Argentine Primera Division.
Veron will begin playing in 2017 and will donate all of his wages to the development of the club.
An Estudiantes statement read: “Juan Sebastian Veron signed the contract that ties him to the club as a player for 18 months.
“The current president will play both the first division tournament and the Copa Libertadores and will receive in return a minimum salary that will be donated for the development of the club.
“La Brujita (Veron’s nickname) has been training alongside Professor Leandro De Rose in recent months to get in the best physical shape for the 2017 season.”
