ROME – Diego Armando Maradona was admitted to hospital in Buenos Aires on the evening of 4 January for gastric bleeding. So much fear among the fans, but after just 5 hours the Pibe de Oro was discharged from the Olivos clinic. The former number 10 of Napoli and the Argentine national team has reassured his fans on social media: "I'm fine and I thank you, you worried for no reason". Maradona had in fact gone to the hospital for a series of routine checks before leaving for Mexico and the doctors had wanted to do other tests, including an endoscopy.
As soon as the alarm was triggered, Maradona had been reached in the clinic by sisters, daughters and son Diego Junior, who is in Argentina for the baptism of his son Dieguito Matias. Maradona remained so only a few hours in observation in the clinical center that he could leave in the evening aboard a black SUV. Dalma, eldest daughter of former Boca Juniors and Napoli player and now coach of the Mexican Sinaloa Dorados, has confirmed via Twitter the news of the end of the emergency, thanking those who worried about her health.
A few hours before admission, Maradona's agent, Matias Morla, had announced that her client would continue to train the Sinados of the Sinaloa and would return to Mexico "as soon as she completed routine medical exams". The announcement of one of the lawyers of the former champion of Naples had come to deny the rumors of a farewell of his assisted on the bench of the team playing in the Mexican B-series. So the former 'Pibe' wants to take his revenge after losing against Atletico San Luis the double final of the promotion playoffs.
Also because of the hospitalization Maradona will not have time to direct his team in the first game of the championship, which begins on Sunday, the one against Celaya. "Diego Maradona has reached an agreement to continue with the Dorados – he tweeted Morla – and will continue to be the team's coach. He will resume training as soon as he has completed medical exams here in Argentina. "
On 4 January, evidently it is a date that does not bring good luck to Maradona. Just 19 years ago, on January 4, 2000, the Argentine champion was the victim of a cocaine overdose and was admitted to a coma in the Cantegril clinic in Punta del Este, Uruguay, where he was spending his holidays.
Maradona has reassured fans on Facebook after the many messages dedicated to him: "I want to thank you for the messages of encouragement. I'm sorry you were worried for no reason. I want to tell you that nothing happened, that I'm fine. Today I take care of my nephews Benja, Dieguito Mattia, and my son Diego Fernando. I send a kiss to everyone ".
