Football loses Maradona

Former Napoli, Barcelona and Argentina footballing icon Diego Maradona has died according to media in Argentina.

Reported Maradona suffered a cardiorespiratory arrest in his house where he had settled after returning from a serious operation. Just three days ago, it was reported that the Argentine had left hospital after having a blood clot on his brain removed.

The operation was done to remove the build up of blood between a membrane and his brain known as a subdural hematoma. The personal doctor of Maradona Leopoldo Luque has authorised his leave from hospital after saying the operation had been “successful.”

Maradona is regarded by many to be one of, if not, the greatest footballer to have ever lived. He lifted the World Cup with Argentina in 1986 in addition to two Serie A titles with Napoli as well as a Coppa Italia and UEFA Cup. With Barca, he won the Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup and with Boca Juniors before his arrival in Europe he won the Argentinian title.

He managed the national side between 2008 and 2010 during a coaching career which began in 1994 all the way up until his death where he was the current Gimnasia de La Plata head coach.
