Former Argentinian international, Juan Sebastian Veron, is out of retirement to join his home country club, Estudiantes.
The former Manchester United midfielder signed an 18-month contract with the Argentine top-flight team.
Veron, who hung his boots in 2014, also promised to play in the 2017 Copa Libertadores, if fans bought 65% of the boxes at the club’s new stadium.
His first match would be on January 8, 2017 against Bayer Leverkusen in the Florida Cup.
The 41-year-old has promised to donate his salary to the club.
He won the Uefa Cup with Parma and the Serie A title with Lazio before moving to the Old Trafford in 2001 for a then British record transfer fee of £28.1m.
Voron also won the 2002-03 English Premier League title with United.
