Juan Ramón Verón (born March 17, 1944 in La Plata) is an Argentine football coach and former professional player.

Estudiantes

Nicknamed "La Bruja" (The Witch), Juan Ramón Verón was a midfielder and striker renowned for his technical ability. He played for Estudiantes de La Plata, who were a dominant force in Argentine football during the late 1960s. Verón was known for his ability with the ball at his feet and his goal-scoring prowess.

Among the memorable goals he scored are his "bicycle" goal against Racing Club, the two goals against Brazil's Palmeiras in the final of the 1968 Libertadores Cup and, most famously, his glorious header in the Intercontinental Cup championship against Manchester United that same year.

Later years

Known as one of Estudiantes' all time great players, he moved on to play for Panathinaikos F.C. of Athens, Greece in 1972 but returned to Estudiantes in 1975.

In 1976 he moved to Colombia where he played for Junior where he helped the team to win the 1977 Colombian title and then Cúcuta Deportivo before returning to his home club in 1980. After retiring, he had a brief career as coach in Central America and is now working as a sort of special advisor for Estudiantes.

Little Witch

His son, "La Brujita" (The Little Witch), Juan Sebastián Verón, is also a footballer, he played for Estudiantes before moving to European football. In 2006 he returned to Estudiantes to captain them to their first title in 23 years in the Apertura 2006 tournament.
