A medical committee investigating the circumstances of the death of Argentine soccer star Diego Maradona concluded that the legend’s medical team “acted in an inappropriate manner that revealed negligence and negligence.”
The death of Maradona at the age of 60 in November of last year shocked Argentina and the world of football, where he was immensely popular, and many demanded investigation and accountability for those responsible for his sudden death.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office in Argentina began the investigation, after the death of the former star, due to heart failure in his home near the capital, Buenos Aires, and the investigation included searching the belongings of his private doctor, as well as investigating other people from the team responsible for his care.
The report of the medical committee, issued on Friday, said, “The work of the medical team authorized to treat Diego Armando Maradona revealed negligence and negligence” in performing its mission.
The report indicated that Maradonas condition had worsened, and that he was dying about 12 hours before his death around midday on November 25.
The report added: “He showed clear signs of suffering for a long time, and for this we conclude that the patient did not receive the required attention from 00:30 hours on November 25, 2020.”
Maradona, who won the World Cup with Argentina in 1986, is considered one of the most prominent footballers in its history and enjoys a high position in his country, despite his long problems with drugs and alcoholism.
Maradona has previously played for Barcelona, Napoli, Seville, Boca Juniors and Argentinos Juniors.
