Argentina legend Diego Maradona recovering after successful brain surgery, personal doctor confirms


Diego Maradona Argentina

Diego Maradona's brain surgery was a success and the Argentina great is recovering, according to his personal doctor Leopoldo Luque.

Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata head coach Maradona, 60, underwent a "routine" operation for a subdural haematoma on Tuesday.

The former Argentina and Napoli superstar was admitted to Ipensa clinic in La Plata on Monday due to concerns over anemia and dehydration, before being transferred toOlivos Clinic in Buenos Aires province.

"I was able to evacuate the hematoma successfully and Diego tolerated the surgery very well," Luque told reporters following the emergency procedure.

"Diego is under control. He has a small drain to remove fluid that we are planning to take out tomorrow. His stay at the hospital will depend on his evolution.

"But the start of his recovery was great. The way he reacted after the surgery is promising."

Maradona, who won the World Cup with Argentina in 1986 and guided Napoli to two Serie A titles, has been in charge of Superliga Argentina club Gimnasia since 2019.

He appeared in a fragile state when he briefly made an appearance as his Gimnasia side played a match on the evening of his birthday last Friday.

Gimnasia won their opening game 3-0 at home to Patronato.

Maradona has suffered a number of health issues since retiring from football, twice undergoing gastric bypass surgery after becoming dangerously overweight, and falling ill at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

He took in another spell in hospital the following year due to internal bleeding of the stomach, with his daughter Gianinna raising fears that her father was being "killed from the inside" by continuinghis career in coaching on social media.

Maradona dismissed her concerns in his own Instagram post, stating: "I'm not dying at all. I sleep peacefully because I am working. I don't know what Gianinna meant.
