Maradona Set To Treated of Alcohol Dependency
Former Napoli and FC Barcelona midfielder Diego Armando Maradona was discharged from hospital on Wednesday and taken to a recovery clinic to be treated for alcohol dependency. Maradona, who led Argentina to World Cup triumph in 1986, had a successful operation for a blood clot on the brain earlier in this month. However, alcohol withdrawal symptoms kept him in hospital for longer.
“The good thing is that Diego is together, Diego is solid,” his lawyer, Matias Morla, said.
Maradona was admitted to the Ipensa clinic in Buenos Aires last week with anaemia and dehydration. Only a few close friends will be allowed to visit the 60-year-old at the rehabilitation clinic.
