Frenz United have announced that former Manchester United midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron will serve as tournament ambassador at the Frenz International Cup (FIC) in Johor.
The Argentinian is scheduled to be in Malaysia, when the tournament kicks off this weekend (22 May 2016).
Juan Sebastian Veron started his career with Estudiantes de La Plata before being signed by Boca Juniors and played alongside Diego Maradona. The hard-tackling midfielder then moved to Italy and had spells at Sampdoria, Parma and Lazio. During his time in Italy, he won six trophies including the UEFA Super Cup after defeating Manchester United 1-0 in 1999.
The dawn of the 21st century saw Juan Sebastian Veron joining Manchester United, which was the most expensive transfer in English football. He only featured in two seasons with the Red Devils and the most part of it was hampered by injuries. He was persuaded by then-Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri to join the Blues and only played 14 games with them.
He then flew back to Italy to play for Inter Milan, before moving back to his first club Estudiantes and spent six seasons there. He is now the chairman of that club.
Estudiantes de La Plata lost 3-2 in in the final of the 2015 FIC to S.C. Internacional.
The 2016 Frenz International Cup will be shown on Astro Arena channel 801.
