The Argentine star underwent back surgery last month, but was expected to be back just in time to make the last few weeks of the season.
However, Veron has now admitted that his bad luck is continuing.
The Argentine has played just 11 times since joining Chelsea from Manchester United in a £15 million deal last summer.
Speaking from Argentina, Veron confirmed that he would not be making a quick return.
"I feel I've had a lot of bad luck since I came to England," Veron told The Mirror.
"Maybe I am cursed.
"It's very hard for me to take, but I must not risk my career."
