Diego Maradona had spent eight days in hospital after he was admitted for an emergency operation for a blood clot on the brain.
Diego Maradona’s medics had played down the subdural haematoma detected last weekuring a CT scan after Diego was admitted to a private clinic, describing the surgery he underwent as “routine”.
But Matias Morla painted a more dramatic picture of the 60-year-old’s health scare after visiting the former Napoli and Barcelona star.
He said as he left the private Olivos Clinic on the outskirts of Buenos Aires: “Diego experienced perhaps the most difficult moment of his life.
“I think the fact the brain bleed was discovered when it was is a miracle because it could have cost him his life.”
Confirming Maradona was scheduled to leave the clinic in the next few hours so he can continue to be treated for other conditions – thought to include his alcahol dependency – he added: “Diego’s in good shape and keen to rehabilitate himself with regards to other problems he has.
“He’s due to leave hospital today but we don’t know exactly when.”
Diego Maradona who turned 60 on October 30, was originally expected to continue his recovery at his new four-bed home on a gated estate a short drive from the training ground of the top-flight Argentinian side he now manages.

Maradona was expected to leave Hospital last week,but was kept in after one if his doctors revealed he had been suffering ‘episodes of confusion’ linked to alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
Maradona’s ex-girlfriend insisted shortly before his subdural haematoma was discovered that he needed urgent treatment for his ‘real problem’ – alcohol addiction.
Rocio Oliva spent six years with the recovering drug addict and came close to marrying him before their split at the end of 2018.
“You can keep him in hospital three or four days and get him better by hydrating him and giving him vitamins but that’s not the solution.
“Diego takes sleeping pills, but here Diego’s problem is alcohol and it’s well known.
“Diego is still drinking and whoever says he isn’t is a liar.
“He needs to be treated for his alcohol addiction.”
