AGE IS JUST a number, at least for Juan Sebastian Veron.

The former Manchester United and Chelsea midfielder hung up his boots over two years ago, but returned to the field with his boyhood club, Estudiantes, in Copa Libertadores action at the ripe old age of 42.

Veron played his first professional match way back in 1994 and retired in 2014, only to sign an 18-month deal with Estudiantes at the end of last year.

Unfortunately, the ageless midfielder could not keep his side from taking a 2-0 loss to Group 1 leaders Barcelona SC of Ecuador.
