According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, the Argentine prosecutor’s office has opened an investigation into three medical workers whose actions may have led to the death of world soccer star Diego Maradona. The footballer, who scored 34 goals for Argentina, died on November 25, 2020, at the age of only 60.
Psychologist Carlos Diaz, who worked with one of the best players of the twentieth century a few months before his death, and two nurses Dahiana Jisela Madrid and Ricardo Almiron, who are suspected of negligence, were among those suspected of being involved in Diego Maradona’s death, – reports the website of the Echo of Moscow radio station.
After Diego Maradona’s death, investigations were launched based on the testimony of the former footballer’s daughters, who questioned the actions of doctors who monitored his condition, – reports RBC.
The Argentine prosecutor’s office had previously filed charges against psychiatrist Agustina Kosachov, also a suspect in the case is doctor Leopoldo Luque, who is suspected of manslaughter and failure to help the patient. However, it is known that Diego Maradona for many years suffered from drug addiction.
Shortly before his death, Diego Maradona’s health deteriorated significantly. On November 3, 2020, three days after his 60th birthday, he was hospitalized with signs of depression. The footballer was treated at a private clinic in La Plata, a city 40 kilometers south of Buenos Aires, where he had lived and coached the local team since late last year.
The next day, November 4, it became known that the Argentine surgeons have successfully operated on the coach of the Argentina national soccer team – he had previously been diagnosed with a subdural hematoma.
