Diego Maradona’s daughters’ will not attend the ‘Maradona Cup tribute match’

Diego Maradona’s daughters, Dalma and Gianinna, have said they will not attend the ‘Maradona Cup’ tribute match between Barcelona and Boca Juniors in December, and criticized the commercialization after their father’s death.

The late great footballer died in November 2020, at the age of 60, after suffering a heart attack. At the time, he was recovering from an operation at a clinic to remove a blood clot from his head.

To remember and pay tribute to Maradona, two of his former clubs will meet in Saudi Arabia. He spent two seasons with Boca, where he retired in 1997, and also enjoyed two years at Barcelona before joining Napoli in 1984.

However, his daughters have expressed dismay at the occasion and have targeted the former lawyer for the 1986 World Cup winner.

Meetings held to plan the match used Matías Morla as an intermediary, but he has endured a heated relationship with both Dalma and Gianinna after they accused him of abandoning his father and acting ‘dishonestly’.

According to Four In Spain, Dalma has said: ‘This is the guy who approached my father as a fan and now claims to be the owner of my father’s image, voice and name, stating that they are not his children.’

In the past, Morla’s offices have been raided by anti-fraud police, and the legal representative remains locked in a bitter inheritance dispute with Maradona’s daughters over the legend’s brand and image rights.

When asked about the tension, Morla took aim at Dalma and Gianinna, and claimed that they abandoned their father before his death.

“Maradona was abandoned, that’s clear,” Morla told America TV. “He died alone, apart from the sisters he talked to every day and (his ex-girlfriend) Verónica Ojeda, who went to see him with Dieguito Fernando, his son.”

The raid on Morla’s offices took place earlier this year after Dalma and Gianinna filed a complaint against him on March 12 for fraud. They accused him of “treason, dishonesty and abuse” in his management of the Maradona brand.

Morla, however, believes that the problem of the daughters is focused solely on money.

‘Diego said:’ The Maradona brand will take care of my sisters, the image will take care of my heiresses, ‘Morla said, adding that Maradona presented a signed document to that effect before a Dubai court in 2015 or 2016.

He added that Dalma and Gianinna “don’t like me because in 2014 we took away their credit cards.”

Meanwhile, Morla has appeared to testify as a witness in the case in which Maradona’s death is being investigated.

Speaking at the San Isidro Prosecutor’s Office, Buenos Aires, he insisted that the medical treatment his client received was “very bad.”

“Many mistakes were made because Diego died, they inflated and inflated the poor man until his heart exploded,” said Morla, after more than three hours of testimony.

Authorities in the northern suburb of the city are delving into the circumstances surrounding Maradona’s death, which occurred in a rented house in Tigre. He was under the supervision of a seven-person medical team.

The members, including the neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, have already declared in the investigation, which will determine if there was any malpractice or negligence in Maradona’s care.

Prosecutors are exploring whether the iconic star received “insufficient” attention.

The crime of “simple homicide with possible intent” can be punished with a penalty of between eight and 25 years in prison by the Argentine Justice.

Luque, who successfully performed a brain operation on Maradona, and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, who also treated him, have denied any wrongdoing.

However, audio of private conversations between doctors and members of Maradona’s entourage was leaked, suggesting that the former playmaker was not properly cared for prior to his death.

His autopsy revealed that Maradona died in his sleep of acute pulmonary edema, a build-up of fluid in the lungs, linked to congestive heart failure.

The toxicology report did not detect alcohol or illegal substances in his system, although psychotropic drugs used to help with anxiety and depression were found.
