Leopoldo Luque answered questions to the press at the Ipensa de La Plata sanatorium. He admitted that the Gymnastics DT “is not an easy patient” and remarked: “If he is here it is because he wanted to.”
Leopoldo Luque, Diego Maradona’s doctor spoke on Monday night at the door of the Sanatorio Ipensa de La Plata. “He saw it as when Maradona is ill,” he commented as part of the reasons that led him to decide to be hospitalized, in search of general check-ups. And he added in that sense: “There are times when you have to invade Diego a little more. He is not an easy patient.”
Luque commented that at the time of entering the clinic Diego, who had had problems with his diet in recent days, presented a picture of dehydration. He flatly denied versions that spoke of a stroke and explained that there is no need for a transfer.
He also remarked that, after initial resistance, he himself ended up accepting the possibility of hospitalization. “When a patient exceeds an institution he must be transferred, but this would not be the case,” he explained.
“I told Diego to go to the clinic. At first he did not want to but later he accepted. He is a complicated patient, difficult to treat, because he is not as obedient as others. With other patients it is easier, because one gives an indication and he usually complies. But if he is here it is because he wanted to come, “he commented in statements to journalists gathered at the door of the care center and then to the program” 90 minutes “, on ESPN.
