Hospital: Maradona ‘perfect’ after car crash

BUENOS AIRES - Former Argentine football player and coach Diego Maradona escaped serious injury on Monday when his car was involved in a collision with a bus near his Buenos Aires home, local media and officials said.

Maradona, widely seen as one of the best football players in history, underwent routine tests after the accident in the capital’s Ezeiza suburb, hospital director Oscar Sico told local television.

Maradona’s girlfriend was with him at the time and was also out of danger.

“The two are in a perfect condition, they’ve hardly suffered any injuries and they came to the hospital by themselves as a precautionary measure,” Sico said.

Maradona, 50, is waiting to start a new coaching job at Al Wasl in the United Arab Emirates after failing to keep his last job as head of the national team.
