[Juan Sebastian Veron speaks about the future of the Argentinian national team] It’s time to build a group. Obviously, if Leo [Messi] is eager [to be part of the national team], they would need to involve him little by little. I think we have to prepare the base, and once and for all, think about a team and not think about someone who can save us. Even more at this time, watching other national teams and how they faced the World Cup, it seems essential to think about a group

[Ex-Inter Midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron discussed how the Coronavirus emergency is unfolding in his native country] It’s been a week since football has been stopped and the situation is becoming a bit heavy in our country. The government has set restrictions, we have to stay at home. As for the club, I feel for the guys, trying to understand how they are. As a club we have provided the infrastructure that we have in case the situation becomes more difficult

[The 45-year-old Argentinian then discussed current Serie A players that have similar qualities to the ones he possessed] Sensi and Luis Alberto look like me. Maybe Sensi has some of my characteristics. When I moved to Italy, they let me do little, because coming from Argentina the tactical part wasn’t my forte. In this sense Eriksson was the coach who understood me the most, with him I expressed myself at my best, he gave me complete freedom. Another player I like a lot is Luis Alberto, he is having a great season and he has some characteristics in which I see myself again

[He revealed why he wore the famous knee bandage for so long in his career] The sash I wore on my knee? It started at Sampdoria, with a dear friend who was also at Lazio and Inter, Sergio Viganò, a masseur. At the time I had a small problem with my knee and out of habit I wore it until the end of my career

[Veron spoke about Inter forward Lautaro Martinez and Juventus star Paulo Dybala] They are different players. Dybala is a player who can not only play as a second striker, but also as a trequartista. I don’t think Lautaro can do that, but inside the area he’s a player who is unlikely to make a mistake in front of the goal. They can play together, they’re young, they have a lot of years to improve everything they’ve shown over the years
