Former Argentina manager Alejandro Sabella has been placed in intensive care unit (ICU), just a day after the footballing world mourned the death of Diego Maradona.

Sabella led La Albiceleste for three years between 2011 and 2014, guiding them to the World Cup final in 2014 before resigning after the tournament.

The 66-year-old hasn't held a managerial post since.

And as Argentina mourns the loss of an icon, there's further bad news with TyC Sports reporting that Sabella was hospitalised ‘urgently’ on Wednesday night before being taken to the Cardiovascular Institute of Buenos Aires.

Sabella has a history with heart problems, although the report wasn't clear on exactly what his latest health scare is.

The 66-year-old's work as Estudiantes and Argentina manager has seen him celebrated in his homeland, while he's remembered in the UK for stints as a player at both Sheffield United and Leeds.
