The 35-year-old, who can number Barcelona, Monaco and the New York Red Bulls among his former clubs, has swapped Mexican outfit Club Leon for another shot at European football.

A statement published on Verona's official website said Marquez had successfully passed a medical and had chosen to wear the number four shirt at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi.

Marquez betrayed his advancing years to feature at the World Cup finals in Brazil, with his goal against Croatia making him the first Mexican player to score at three consecutive World Cups. He has earned 124 caps in 17 years.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
