Veron Receives South American Player Of The Year Award
Estudiantes de La Plata captain, Juan Sebastian Veron, expressed his satisfaction after being officially named South American Footballer of the Year for 2008...
Argentine midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron affirmed that he still has "lots of projects and objectives" in his career, after having received the award for being South American Footballer of the Year for 2008, in Montevideo on Thursday.
"This prize is a great honour, I'm very proud, because it is a recognition for all the dedication and love that I put into what I do," stated the Estudiantes de La Plata captain.
Veron is keen on finding more success in football, and he reaffirmed his intention to "win an international title with Estudiantes and to return to the Argentine national team."
Uruguayan newspaper El Pais, who has organized the event for the past 23 years, counted votes from all around the region, with Veron finishing in first place, beating Boca Juniors midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme by three votes.
Veron also commented about the South American World Cup qualifiers, stating that he believes Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay, will qualify for the World Cup, in that order. According to the player Chile will end up in fifth place.
"Paraguay are doing things very well, and they will surely be in the World Cup. Brazil and Argentina will follow them.
"Then it is difficult, but I think Uruguay can earn fourth spot and qualify directly to South Africa 2010, and Chile in fifth place, and they will take part in the playoff," concluded Veron.
