Argentina legend Diego Maradona’s health has been a cause of concern of late as he has been in and out of hospital quite a few times in the past. In a recent health scare, the former footballer got admitted to hospital due to internal bleeding in the stomach. It was discovered during his routine examination, revealed his daughter Dalma. However, much to his fans’ relief, Maradona is out of danger now and back home.
“For those who were really worried about my dad, I can tell you that he is well,” Dalma wrote on Twitter after fears over her father’s health spread. “He is going home soon.”
The 58-year-old was getting his regular medical checkup done in Argentina before returning to Mexico, where he is the coach of second division side Dorados de Sinaloa when the health issue suddenly came in the forefront.
Maradona took over the responsibility of the club in September and led them into the playoffs where they lost to Atletico San Luis.
“Diego Maradona has arranged to continue with the Dorados de Sinaloa and will stay as coach of the team for the whole season,” his agent Matias Morla wrote on Twitter.
The club said his assistant Jose Maria Martinez would lead the team until Maradona returned.
Even during 2018 World Cup in Russia, the former Barcelona midfielder had passed out on the stands of the stadium during Argentina-Nigeria match, where the former defeated the latter 2-1 to reach the final 16. However, they got defeated by France in the Round of 16.
