Ricardo Matias Verón ( born 22 January 1981, in Santa Fe) is an Argentine football midfielder who plays for Greek Superleague side OFI.

Verón started his professional career at San Lorenzo in the Primera Division Argentina in 1999. In 2001 he was sold to Reggina. He has spent time on loan at Salernitana in Italy, at Lanús and San Lorenzo in Argentina, at Serie B side F.C. Crotone. He played in Siena on a co-ownership deal with Reggina.

On January 22, 2008, incidentally his birthday, Veron signed for Greek club PAOK on a loan deal. After a quite successful 6-month period, PAOK came to terms with Siena and Matias signed a new three-year contract, in the summer of 2008. He has gradually become a mainstay in the midfield, being one of the most-capped players of the 2008 2009 season.

The 2009 2010 season has not been equally successful though, as Veron has fallen out of favor and rarely makes any appearances, even as a substitute. In July 2010, a new chapter in Veron's career started, as he moved to OFI FC, the historic club from Crete, Greece.
