Maradona left a letter to the family before he died. He had one last wish: football

This was Diego Maradona’s wish. Few people in his life have been able to resist him, but everything indicates that the family did not grant his last request. And these are written requests, because according to journalist Martin Arevalo – one of the few close to Maradona – it was formalized at a notary on October 13. Maradona Matias Morla, a famous lawyer and friend of the late footballer, advised that.

Maradona wanted his body to be embalmed

– He suffered a lot when he saw the sick Edgardo Bauza (they suspect he has Alzheimer’s, although he himself denies it) or the death of Daddy Brown. He also suffered from coach Carlos Bilardo’s illness (in 1986 he led Argentina to the world championship, now he is 82 years old and suffers from severe neurological disorders). He just felt sick to see his friends flirting with death. That’s why at one point, ie a few months ago during the lockdown, he came up with the idea of ​​embalming his body. So that after his death he will stay with us forever – said at TyC Sports Arevalo, who added at the end that Maradona left the final decision to his relatives.

The Reuters Agency recalls that if the family agreed, Maradona would be the next great Argentinian after President Juan Perona and his wife Evie Peron, whose bodies were embalmed after their deaths.
