Maradona, 60, died on Wednesday at his home in Tigray
Diego Maradona’s lawyer, Matthias Morla, said Thursday he would request a full investigation into the soccer star’s death and criticized what he said was a slow response from the emergency service.
Maradona, 60, died on Wednesday at his home in Tigre, north of Buenos Aires, after suffering a heart attack.
In the wake of this, the Argentine presidency declared the country mourning for 3 days. There will also be a minute of silence in the Champions League and Europa League stadiums on Wednesday and Thursday.
The former soccer player was suffering from various health problems. A few weeks ago, he underwent surgery because of a blood pool in his brain.
“What cannot be explained is that my friend stays for 12 hours without any attention from the designated personnel,” Morla said on Twitter.
“The ambulance took more than half an hour to arrive, which is a criminal folly,” he added, noting that the truth should not be “ignored” and that he would seek a full investigation into the matter.
Maradona was born on October 30, 1960, in the province of Lanos in the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires. He is considered a football legend during the 1980s and one of the greatest footballers of all time.
