Two daughters of the late football legend, Diego Maradona have been accused of stealing and abandonment by Matías Morla a former lawyer to the late Argentine.

Dalma and Gianinna Maradona have been involved in a bitter inheritance dispute with Morla over Maradona’s image rights and estate amounting to £60million.

The Argentine lawyer speaking in an interview with America TV on Monday night hit back at the heiresses insisting they profited from the star’s demise

“He was fighting to the death with Dalma and Gianinna — he felt betrayed and robbed,” he said

They abandoned Maradona. He died alone.”

Morla further claimed he was disliked by the late legend’s daughters over being cut off from Maradona’s wealth while stating his former client’s sisters, son and ex-girlfriend  were the constant presence before his death

“The girls do not love me since we cut their credit cards in June 2014,” he said.

“Apart from the sisters with whom he spoke every day and Veronica Ojeda, who went to see him with Dieguito Fernando, his son,”

Dalma and Gianinna had earlier accused Morla of kidnapping their father which led to a raid on  the lawyer’s offices for fraud-related matters on Monday

The daughters equally blamed the lawyer and company Sattvica for “dishonesty” in managing their father’s brand and had an injunction preventing the company from further using the brand

Morla was quick to denounce the claims insisting they were just out for his late client’s money further adding that the former world cup winner submitted a signed document to that effect with a Dubai court in 2015 or 2016.

“Diego said: ‘The Maradona brand will look after my sisters, the image will look after my heirs,’”

Maradona was involved in substance abuse from the mid-1980s to 2004 which led to several visits to health centres for rehabilitation treatment. The Hand-Of God star underwent emergency brain surgery to treat a subdural hematoma on 12 November

He later died of a heart attack at 60 years on the 25th of November 2020
