I hated England! Ex-Manchester United and Chelsea star Juan Veron blasts Premier League

Argentina midfielder Juan Veron has blasted English football claiming his time in the Premier League nearly made him quit football altogether. Veron - who is leading Argentina's World Cup charge - moved to Manchester United from Lazio in 2001 before swapping Old Trafford for Chelsea two years later. The 35-year-old arrived in England with a massive reputation - but he failed to live up to expectations before Chelsea loaned him to Inter Milan in 2004. The middle man: Argentina midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron But Veron is quoted as saying in the News of the World: 'I wandered around Europe like a gypsy, without ever finding happiness or somebody who understood me. 'That's why I went back to Estudiantes. I was tired of being a wanderer. 'England has a spectacular Premier League but that's it. They don't train very much and there were no proper warm-ups at Manchester United.  Unhappy: Juan Veron didn't enjoy his time in England 'Paul Scholes would turn up and fire off a shot, without warming up, from 50 metres towards the goal even when it was minus five degrees. 'I did that once and I pulled a muscle from my knee to my hip. 'I was never happy in England and my time there made me question my desire to continue playing.'  Liverpool snub Benitez over £25m Mascherano as Barcelona lie in waitMaradona: A dig at FIFA, a swipe at Spain, but Argentina are thrivingWe're just not that Inter you, Javier!
