Reports in Argentina suggest Maradona has restarted his relationship with Veronica Ojeda and has invited her to live with him along with their son Dieguito Fernando in Mexico.
Journalist Jorge Rial has made the revelation on the ‘Instrusos’ programme broadcast on the Argentine channel La Red.
Rial said: “Diego Maradona is going to Mexico, but he is not going alone, he is going with Veronica and Dieguito Fernando. They are living together. It’s now impossible to communicate with her, somebody told me that her phone is in his hands.”
Maradona and Ojeda ended their previous eight-year relationship in 2012 when she was three months pregnant with their son. Diego, known as Dieguito, is Maradona’s only son.
The ex-Barcelona man then quickly began living with Rocio Oliva in Dubai but the pair recently split up and Maradona has apparently returned to his previous lover.
Rial added: “Diego is happy, totally changed and is playing with Dieguito Fernando all day, he’s very involved with the boy. They are sorting everything out and if the papers are there, they will go to Mexico together on Thursday.”
Maradona is returning to Mexico to continue his role as head coach of second-flight team Dorados de Sinaloa.
The footballing icon was recovering in Argentina after recently undergoing surgery to stop internal bleeding caused by hernia. The 58-year-old’s lawyer said the procedure went “perfectly”.
