Maradona in Italy to again battle weight increase


Diego Maradona

ANSA reported yesterday that Maradona will meet Dr. Henri Chenot after Argentina lost 3-1 to Brazil and 1-0 to Paraguay to drop out of the automatic World Cup qualifying places.

Argentina has won six matches and lost four since Maradona took over in November 2008. Those losses include a 6-1 thrashing by Bolivia and a 2-0 defeat to Ecuador.

Maradona, who captained Argentina to the 1986 World Cup, underwent a stomach stapling operation in 2005 following his extreme weight gain as a result of alcohol and drug addictions.
