Diego Maradona is still ill in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery to remove blood clot on his brain on Tuesday, October 3.
Doctor of the Argentine legend has disclosed that the 60-year-old is now in need of clean up as he is also suffering confusion as well as liver and heart problems.
He only turned 60 on October 31 and barely three days after celebrating his birthday with his family and friends, the football icon was admitted to a hospital.
An unnamed hospital in La Plata in Argentina is where the football legend was said to have been taken to and he is currently receiving treatments.
He has been sedated by doctors after enduring 'episodes of confusion' linked to alcoh*l withdrawal symptoms, according to a member of his medial team.
In a chat with TyC Sports as cited in ESPN, Maradona’s personal doctor Alfredo Cahe says the case is getting worse as he is suffering from heart and liver problems.
Cahe said as cited in SunSport:
"He has to have treatment to stop drinking alcohol. All of his family is in agreement that Diego as he is now is unmanageable.
"We need to take the bull by the horns. He has liver problems, cardiovascular problems.
"It's not his brain on one hand, his liver on another, his stomach. It's a mix of things.
"We need to clean Diego up, and then we'll see. He is still a complicated patient."
Cahe added Maradona needs to be somewhere he can receive 'permanent help'.
Messi took to social media to express his desire to see his former national team coach return to full fitness.
However Legit.ng earlier reported that Ronaldinho has snubbed his former Barcelona teammate Messi as the best footballer of all-time after selecting Pele, Diego Maradona and Ronaldo de Lima.
Ronaldinho and Messi played together at the Camp Nou for a while until Pep Guardiola's arrival at the club as the Spanish legend asked him to leave the club.
The 2002 World Cup winner believes that there are three other players better than the Argentine superstar and it would be difficult to call him the goat.
