The Argentine ex-footballer Diego Maradona has assured that he is in good health, after being hospitalized this Friday in a hospital on the outskirts of Buenos Aires due to a "stomach bleeding" that was discovered while he was undergoing medical studies.
"I went to the clinic to make resonance (…) Nothing happened, now I go for the rematch with Dorados, they are waiting for me," he said on a local radio, ruling out serious problems.
Maradona, 58, was doing routine exams before traveling to Mexico to redirect the Sinaloa Dorados when the bleeding was detected, so they did additional studies and remained under observation for several hours.
In the afternoon, Maradona received a medical discharge and retired to his home, but a source from the former Naples soccer player told Reuters that in the next few days they will have to carry out further studies.
Earlier on Friday, Maradona's lawyer, Matías Morla, had confirmed that the world champion in Mexico 86 he would continue as coach of Dorados and that he would join the training after performing "routine medical examinations in Argentina" requested by the Mexican Football Federation.
In turn, Dorados reported that the team will be led in the first matches by technical assistant José María Martínez. "The club has requested, for medical reasons, that the coach be present in the near future," the club said in a statement.
