Argentine soccer star Diego Maradona is recovering well from a brain operation and post-surgery complications and should be discharged over the next couple of days, his physician said on Monday.
According to the Leopoldo Luque, “Diego wants to go home, and we are evaluating his discharge,”
“We’ll talk about where he goes later, but for now we know that Diego is doing very well.”
“He wants to leave, but he’s going to stay,” Leopoldo Luque told reporters in a short statement outside the Buenos Aires clinic were Maradona is being treated.
“This was one of the few times where Diego has been told no.”
“Diego is very difficult, very difficult,” he said. “You can’t imagine. We are trying to be stronger than he is.”
The 60-year-old Maradona was operated last week for a subdural haematoma, a blood clot on the brain.
Maradona who played with Barcelona, Napoli and Boca Juniors player was kept in over the weekend suffering from withdrawal symptoms caused by alcohol dependency but Luque said he would likely be discharged either tomorrow or the next day.
He won the World Cup with Argentina in 1986 and is considered one of the greatest players of all time, has suffered frequent periods in hospital over the years, often due to his extravagant lifestyle.
Maradona has continued to cause controversy since his heyday as a player, getting sent home from the 1994 World Cup in the United States for doping and later dropping in and out of the game as a coach.
