Maradona Undergoes Surgery for Stomach Bleeding

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona underwent successful surgery on Saturday for minor stomach bleeding at a clinic outside Buenos Aires.

He is set to be released in a couple of days to resume his duties as manager of Mexican second-division club Dorados de Sinaloa.

“The surgical intervention on Diego Maradona has ended. Thankfully everything went perfectly. We are grateful to the medical department of the Olivos Clinic for their professionalism and humanity. Now we will wait for recovery so Diego can go back to work as soon as possible,” Matias Morla, Maradona’s legal representative, told reporters.

The former Argentine national was diagnosed with the problem in a routine check up last week.

After a series of pre-surgery tests, the surgery was completed in an hour for a “small intestinal eventration,” the result of gastric bypass which was carried out in Venezuela in 2015, after a similar procedure 10 years earlier in Colombia.

Medical sources told EFE that Maradona will be hospitalized until Monday.

Afterwards, he is expected to return to Mexico to take charge of the Dorados in the Clausura competition of the second-tier league Ascenso MX, having lost to San Luis in the final of the Apertura tournament earlier.
