Maradona lawyer says late star's medical treatment 'very bad'

   SAN ISIDRO, Argentina, Oct 26, 2021 (BSS/AFP) - Diego Maradona's former

lawyer said Monday the medical treatment given to his client was "very bad",
after giving testimony in the investigation into the death of the Argentine
football star.

  "There were many mistakes made because Diego died, they inflated and
inflated the poor guy until his heart exploded," Matias Morla told reporters
after his more than three hours of testimony at the prosecutor's office in
San Isidro.

  Authorities in the northern suburb of Buenos Aires are investigating the
circumstances of Maradona's death.

  The medical treatment Maradona received was "very bad, that's why he died,"
Morla said.

  Maradona died of a heart attack on November 25 aged 60 while recovering
from an operation to remove a blood clot from his head.

  He also suffered from kidney and liver problems, heart failure,
neurological deterioration and alcohol and drug addictions.

  The late football great had been recovering in a private residence under
the supervision of a seven-person medical team.

  The team members have already testified in the investigation to determine
whether there was any neglect or malpractice in Maradona's care.

  Morla said that during his last visit with Maradona on November 16, "he had
a strange voice, robotic, very high-pitched and intermittent.

  "I informed everyone of Diego's condition," Morla said. "I then realized it
was because of the amount of water retained in his body."

  The lawyer denounced as "crazy" the family's decision to have Maradona
recover outside of a hospital.

  Maradona "had no reason to go to a house when the doctors said he had to
stay in a clinic," Morla said, adding he believed his client had been
"abandoned by his daughters."

  "But one thing is moral responsibility and another is legal

  Maradona's two older daughters, Dalma and Gianinna, were accused in August
of harassing Morla online.
