Diego Maradona’s health appears to have deteriorated after all. The legendary former footballer has to undergo emergency surgery on Tuesday because of a blood clot in his brain.

Maradona celebrated its sixtieth birthday on Friday

New medical tests have revealed the blood clot. Maradona was transferred on Tuesday evening from the hospital in La Plata, Argentina, to a clinic in Olivos, where an operation of about six hours awaits him.

According to Maradona’s personal physician, Leopoldo Luque, it is not a high-risk surgery. “Diego is conscious, understands what is going on and agrees to this procedure,” he told Argentine media at the clinic. “He is very calm about it. This is a routine procedure.”

Maradona was admitted to hospital in La Plata on Monday with symptoms of anemia and dehydration. Initially, the symptoms could be traced back to psychological complaints.

Maradona celebrated his sixtieth birthday last Friday. He was invited to a match of Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, the club of which he is trainer, but according to those involved made a confused impression.

“It was an emotional and complicated week for him, with a lot of pressure,” said Dr. Luque earlier. “His mood was hurt. He’s not as fit as I would like. He needs help, now is the time to help him.”

Maradona is considered one of the greatest football players of all time. The former attacker led Argentina to the world title in Mexico in 1986. He played in a club with Boca Juniors, FC Barcelona and Napoli, among others.
