Estudiantes have confirmed that Juan Sebastian Veron is currently whipping himself back into shape in order to make his grand return to football at the age of 41.

Veron originally retired in 2014 to become chairman of his boyhood club but it would appear that the former Manchester United and Chelsea man has now had his fill of the boardroom and is keen to return to frontline duty.

Why Arsene is right not to splash the cash! by DW

It is now January 8th 2013 and the transfer window has officially got underway. The gates to the overpriced and usually disruptive time of the season are open. An often overworked set of players in each team, reeling from the rigors of the Christmas and new year fixtures, are subjected to the media's speculation of grandeur and the chance for them to apparently play for the potential top four teams, causing managers to squeeze their eyes shut in prayer that their star players show some loyalty over the stupidly high wages that are presented to them at the likes of Man City and Chelski.

Does Diego Forlan fit into the category of 'players who split opinion'? I'm not [...]

We have the challenge of being at the top, I think that helps me. The second thing is you need good energy, natural energy which I've been blessed with and been fortunate enough to have.

Not the final everyone assumed 3 weeks ago, but it's the final nonetheless. Paraguay have reached the final game by not even winning a game. 5 draws, 2 shootouts, 5 goals scored, 5 goals against. They're hoping this one goes to penalties. Uruguay though are a talented team lead by the two pronged attack of Forlan and Suarez.
