JUST IN!! Diego Maradona Set To Be Discharged From Hospital After Successful Brain Surgery
Diego Maradona is recovering well from brain surgery and is likely to be discharged from hospital “tomorrow or the next day”, the Argentina legend’s doctor said on Monday.
Dr Leopoldo Luque, who is also Maradona’s neurosurgeon, is hopeful the former Barcelona, Napoli and Boca Juniors player will be discharged in the coming days after having successful surgery on a subdural hematoma – an accumulation of blood between a membrane and his brain.
“Diego wants to go home and we are evaluating his discharge,” said Luque.
“We’ll talk about where he goes later but for now we know that Diego is doing very well.”
Maradona, widely considered to be one of the greatest players of all time, was initially admitted to the Ipensa Clinic in La Plata, Argentina on November 2, suffering from anaemia and dehydration.
