Veron backs unified format for Argentine league

Argentina midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron has backed the national football association's plans to unify the opening and closing stages of the domestic season into one championship.

At the end of 2008, Argentina Football Association (AFA) president Julio Grondona announced his desire to change the Apertura (opening) and Clausura (closing) format into a single championship as is conventional throughout Europe.

The former Manchester United and Chelsea player believes the move could make things easier for everybody.

"I always played long tournaments and I like them. I think that can help Argentinian football," he told Del Plata radio station.

The Estudiantes man added: "There is a lot of pressure in domestic football from the board, the media and also from the players.

"Every day little things get bigger. There is no room to enjoy things - at the weekend everything is blown up.

"If we feel the pressure, I do not want to think what happens to Boca (Juniors) or River (Plate)."
