Chelsea Debut: 13th August 2003 Champions League Qualifer against Zilina (A)



Juan Sebastian Verón was widely regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world when playing for Lazio and Argentina over two years. Manchester United paid 28 million for him, expecting his form to remain brilliant and consistent.

However after 2 years at Old Trafford some felt he had not lived up to expectation.

He debuted in the Champions League qualifier against Zilina, and kicked his first goal for Chelsea in the opening match against Liverpool.

He has started in all the first few games, showing his talent and flair, and he is likely to find himself in a more settled central midfield role. Fingers crossed he maintains his form.
