The war over the succession of the football star is full. The ex-lawyer of Maradona went on the attack, Monday, October 25, pointing out “the errors made” by the doctors, but also the elder daughters of the Argentinian before his death. “Diego swelled and swelled, poor man, until his heart exploded,” Matias Morla told reporters, adding that El Pibe de Oro had died due to the “very bad” medical treatment he received. received.
As part of the investigation for “manslaughter with aggravating circumstances” opened to determine whether the ex-star of the football was “abandoned” to a slow agony for lack of adequate care, the lawyer told the prosecutor and to the press his last visit to his client, on November 16, nine days before his death.
“Abandoned by his daughters”
“When I entered the house he had a strange, robotic voice, very high-pitched and intermittent, I informed everyone of Diego’s state of health. Then I understood that it was because of the amount of water retained in the body, ”he said. The lawyer also qualified as “madness” the decision of the family to continue the convalescence of Maradona outside a hospital environment. Maradona “had no reason to go to a house when the doctors said he had to stay in the clinic,” he said, believing that he had been “abandoned by his eldest daughters”, Dalma and Gianinna.
Diego Maradona, who suffered from kidney and liver problems, heart failure, neurological deterioration and addiction to alcohol and psychotropic drugs, died of a heart attack on November 25, 2020, at the age of 60 years, two weeks after an operation for a hematoma on the head. He was recovering in a private residence under the supervision of a medical team of seven people already heard by the courts as part of the investigation.
Legacy at the heart of the battle?
His ex-lawyer has been authorized to market names, nicknames and pseudonyms referring to Maradona, since the latter gave him power of attorney in 2015 in order to provide financial support to his sisters. Since the death of the Argentine star, Matias Morla and the eldest daughters of ex-number 10 have been engaged in a legal battle over the use of the “Maradona” brand. In early September, the courts rejected an appeal brought by Dalma and Gianinna against Matias Morla.
Civil justice was also seized for the question of the division of his inheritance because in addition to Dalma (34 years old) and Gianinna (32 years old), Maradona recognized three other children of different connections: Diego Junior (34 years old), Jana (25 years old) ) and Diego Fernando (8 years old).
