The largest online poker room in the world, PokerStars, has recruited another terrific sports star to be part of their team of sports ambassadors.
The new acquisition was Argentinian midfield Juan Sebastian VerÃ³n and from now on he will be the PokerStars face in Latin America. He is already featured in a PokerStars ad in Latin America, click here to watch it.
Veron has had a very large and successful soccer career, he is currently 35 and he has played in teams in Argentina and also internationally such as, oca Juniors, Sampdoria, Parma, Lazio, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Inter before returning to Estudiantes four years ago.
He is a very popular figure in Latin America and PokerStars will take advantage of that surely. He is still a great player, you can watch him if you follow the Argentinian team on the World Cup. His latest big soccer accomplishment was completing 153 passes in one match, a new record. Congratulations to PokerStars on their new ambassador.
