Juan Sebastian Veron has announced that he is to reverse his decision to retire in order to play one last season for Estudiantes in the Argentinian Primera Division.

Veron, now 38, has been serving as a technical director at Estudiantes since calling time on his playing days at the end of the 2011-2012 due to a troublesome ankle injury, but the former Argentina captain has now signed a new one-year contract with his boyhood club also announcing that he is to donate his wages for the entire year to the club's youth team.

Juan Sebastian Veron ended his decorated 18-year playing career in 2012 with Estudiantes — the club that started his career. He went on to serve as Estudiantes' director of sport last season, but continued playing by joining amateur side Brandsen. Winning La Plata amateur league apparently reinvigorated the 38-year-old because he's decided to play one more season for Estudiantes.
