Reports claimed that the Argentine went AWOL just a few days before his side's opening league game in the Mexican top flight.

The club has since revealed that the 58-year-old was registered as the coach for the side and was only missing due to health concerns.

A statement from the club read,""registration as coach [for the Clausura 2019 season] was made on time.

"The club have requested, for medical reasons, that the coach shows up in the near future".

Maradona's daughter, Dalma, was also quick to silence any fears that her father was hospitalised for a serious condition as reported by some parts of the media in Argentina.
 
 
"To all those who are really worried about my dad, I tell them that it is okay, that Gianni [another of Maradona's daughters] is there with him and that in a while he goes home." she tweeted.
 
"I would publish the photo they sent me but it is not my style to publish everything."
