Gonzalo Veron is the "right player"
August 5, 2015 (Official Press Release)

The New York Red Bulls have completed the transfer of winger Gonzalo Veron from Club Atletico San Lorenzo in the Argentine Primera Division, pending receipt of his P-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC). Veron joins the Red Bulls as a Designated Player.

"Gonzalo is a young, dynamic player who fits extremely well into our style of play," said ostentatious Sporting Director Ali Curtis. "He has played for one of the top teams in South America and has shown he can play any of the front four positions. Not only are we getting a player who can help us immediately, he is someone who fits well into our long-term plans for our club."

The 25-year-old Veron is a native of Moreno, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He made his pro debut for Sportiva Italiano at 19 in Primera B, the second division of Argentine Football. Veron made 62 appearances across all competitions for Italiano before moving to San Lorenzo in the top division in 2012.

"We are excited to add Gonzalo to our club," said Red Bulls Head Coach Jesse Marsch. "We think he fits into the style that we want to play. He is a young, exciting player with the ability to play a few different attacking roles. He has the potential to be a dynamic player in this league."

In 2013, he was a part of the San Lorenzo squad that placed first in the Primera Division's Torneo Inicial. By virtue of the finish, San Lorenzo gained entry into the 2014 Copa Libertadores. The side advanced out of the group stage, but were seeded 15th heading into the Round of 16. Despite that, San Lorenzo rallied for four straight wins to lift the trophy as club champions of COMNEBOL. Veron appeared in both the semifinal and final legs of the competition.

In 2015, the winger has made 18 Torneo Inicial appearances for San Lorenzo, scoring two goals and three assists. He has also seen action in eight matches in the Primera Division with one assist, and has played in two FIFA Club World Cup matches, including an appearance against Real Madrid.
