His team lost 4-2 after extra-time to Atletico San Luis, before they went down 4-3 on aggregate.
As soon as the game ended, the 58-year-old who was serving a touchline ban after being sent off in the first leg of the tie, clashed with a reporter as he approached him as he exited the Stadium.
The incident which was captured in a video showed Maradona turning to aim a punch at one reporter who had attempted to get close to ask a question. He was quickly held back after launching the first attack.
It’s unclear if the football legend will be punished for the incident.
