Former Man Utd, Lazio star Verón backs US coaches visiting Argentina

Ex-Manchester United and Lazio midfielder Juan Sebastián Verón has backed the program that brings US coaches to Argentina for education sessions.

Verón, who now plays with Estudiantes in Argentina, will be one of the presenters for the CoachesNet program in February next year and believes it is a great thing that the American coaches want to come to South America and learn more.

"(It's) very good, this demonstrates that in the U.S. they are interested in comparing youth systems by getting informed of the work at Estudiantes," Verón said.

"Here more than sport accomplishments, it was always a soccer school. The youth system always developed players for the first team and that has a very important value."
