Diego Maradona To Undergo Emergency Surgery To Remove Blood Clot On Brain

Diego Maradona To Undergo Emergency Surgery To Remove Blood Clot On Brain

Diego Maradona will undergo emergency surgery after doctors discovered a clot in his brain, according to reports in Argentina.

After being admitted to hospital on Monday due to illness, coronavirus was immediately ruled out as a cause and a day later, a subdural hemetoma was detected during tests.

TYC Sports claim the 60-year-old, who celebrated his birthday on Friday, will have surgery tonight.

Maradona's doctor Dr Leopoldo Luque claimed the footballing legend was "not well psychologically" earlier this week.

"He is not well psychologically and that has an impact on his physical wellbeing," Luque told reporters.

"My idea is to have him hydrated for three days, see the evolution and adjust the medication.

Luque went on to diagnose the former Argentina captain with anemia and dehydration, although reports in Argentina now claim he will undergo emergency surgery to treat a clot in his brain.

"He has anemia and was dehydrated and we are working to correct that," he said earlier.

"In reality, we will correct one part but this is going to be a long-term treatment that will continue after he leaves the hospital.

"My idea is to have him at least three days to check on him and keep him under control, but if he wanted to work he could do so now.

"He is in good spirits. He is very weak, very tired and having trouble walking. And the anemia has many factors, one of them being nutrition. He has had the gastric bypass, which means he does not absorb iron very well and he is more likely to suffer from these types of problems.

"The medical recommendation is that he rest, but the decision is up to him. But he is awake and he took a walk down the hall this morning."
