DIEGO MARADONA, dismissed last week by his club, Newell's Old Boys, for repeatedly missing training, is in need of urgent psychiatric help, according to Argentine medical experts. Mauricio Abadi, the country's best-known psychiatrist, said extreme stress was what made Maradona fire an air gun at reporters last week, when they visited the player's home.

'Someone must make Maradona get therapeutic assistance,' a psychologist, Justo Bobeck, said. 'It's the only thing that can save him.'
