- Argentinian newspaper claimed that Maradona suffered from & # 39; neurological problems & # 39;
- A source mentioned that one of his sisters wanted him admitted to the hospital
- Soccer legend angrily denied the report and said: & they lie, they lie & # 39;
- According to lawyers, the story came from & # 39; malicious sources trying to cause conflicts & # 39;
Diego Maradona has angrily denied the reports that he has Alzheimer's disease.
The retired footballer posted a video on his Instagram page and insisted that he did not die from the irreversible brain condition and branded the people behind the rumors: & # 39; Sons of whom know who. & # 39;
The 58-year-old spoke out after the Argentinian newspaper Cronica published a report pointing to the former star of Barcelona and Naples who suffered from & # 39; neurological problems & # 39; and the & # 39; start of Alzheimer's disease & # 39 ;.
He raged: & they lie, they lie. They talk about Alzheimer's and they don't know what it means.
Diego Maradona has maliciously denied the reports that he is suffering from Alzheimer's, and says that the people behind the story lie and tell them & # 39; sons of whom know who & # 39; to mention
Attorneys for the football legend admitted that for health reasons he had distanced himself from his coaching job in Mexico (pictured last year when the role was announced), but said it was only that he could undergo knee and shoulder surgery
& # 39; The word Alzheimer's is a terrible word. People with Alzheimer's disease die. I'm not dying. These sons of them know what they throw there to create confusion. I'm not confusing. & # 39;
Maradona stepped down as manager from the Mexican side Dorados last week to focus on his health, but only to undergo shoulder and knee surgery.
Lawyer Matias Morla added: & # 39;In light of the reports that Diego Maradona is suffering from the onset of Alzheimer's disease, I want to say that none of the medical tests he has undergone show anything of the sort.
& # 39; In Mexico, where Maradona led a football team and technical staff, the club conducted several health checks, some with psychologists and psychiatrists, and all delivered satisfactory results without medical information to support what was reported. & # 39;
He accuses Alzheimer's of a & # 39; malicious source only trying to cause conflicts & # 39 ;, he added: & # 39; Today Diego is concentrating on his health and getting surgery on his shoulder and knee so that he can get back to work as quickly as possible. & # 39;
Retired footballing daughter Dalma, who responded to reports from one of Maradona's sisters, said she wanted him admitted to the hospital, said she had called him after reading the allegations and confirmed that he was in & # 39 ; top form & # 39; used to be.
Cronica has raised alarm bells about Diego's health with a front-page report that says: & # 39; There is concern in his family because of a deterioration in his health condition.
& # 39; There are neurological problems and the onset of Alzheimer's disease.
& # 39; One of his sisters wants him to be hospitalized as soon as possible. There is total secrecy in its inner circle. & # 39;
Maradona's health fears were sparked last year when he had to be helped out of the VIP box after Argentina's naked victory over Nigeria, with reports that initially suggested that he had a heart attack. He later joked that he had exaggerated white wine
The Maradona surgeon said the former Argentinian player (pictured in 1990) has arthritis on both knees and needs a replacement operation if he wants to keep walking
Maradona & # 39; s fight against alcohol and drugs is well documented. He moved to Cuba in 2000 for a period of four years to recover from his addictions and fathered a series of children that his lawyer said he would recognize as his earlier this year.
He was operated on for a small stomach bleed in January.
Last October, after Maradona had introduced himself to a training field in Mexico, his surgeon, the German Ochoa, confirmed that the football legend has severe arthritis in both knees.
He said knee replacement surgery was the only long-term option if he continued walking.
Maradona feared for his well-being last year after he had to be helped out of his VIP box and was assisted by medical staff when Argentina narrowly avoided an early World Cup exit in Russia with a dramatically late goal against Nigeria.
Two Spanish-language recordings that went viral – recorded by the same man and released shortly after the match – claimed he had a fatal heart attack.
One said that an adrenaline injection into his heart had not saved him and the Argentinian team had yet to be told that he had died in the hospital.
A second 42-second recording, a WhatsApp message sent to a mysterious man named Mati by someone who proclaimed himself an Argentinian sports journalist in Russia, added: “They won't announce the news tomorrow. It is a family decision. & # 39;
Maradona responded by offering a four-digit reward to identify the person trying to fool the world by believing he was dead.
Through his lawyer, he promised over £ 8,000 to someone who could help him unmask the man responsible for the murder and forced him to make a statement confirming that he was alive but exaggerating the white wine had dealt with.
