Medical Experts Point Fingers on Diego Maradona's Medical Team

A medical board appointed to investigate the death of the football player has concluded that the medical team of the Argentine player acted in "an inappropriate, deficient and reckless manner," Reuters reported citing the report the outlet has acquired on Friday.

Maradona's neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, psychologist Carlos Diaz, and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov were placed under investigation along with two other nurses, a nursing coordinator, and a medical coordinator.

The investigation followed the directives of Argentina's public prosecutor as they tapped 20 medical experts to look into the cause of death of the football star and discover whether there is any negligence from Maradona's medical team.

The panel accused Diego Maradona's medical team of leaving the football star survival to "fate," BBC reported.

Reuter noted that Maradona had become "seriously" unwell and was dying for around 12 hours before his death on November 25, 2020.

"He presented unequivocal signs of a prolonged agonizing period," said the medical experts working on the investigation. Because of this, the medical experts concluded that Diego Maradona was not properly monitored from 12:30 in the morning of November 25, 2020.

Meanwhile, two of the Argentine football superstar's daughters blamed Luque for his deteriorating health. Moreover, the panel also concluded that Diego Maradona would have a better chance of survival if he received adequate treatment in an appropriate medical facility.

Furthermore, the panel also discovered that the football star's treatments have deficiencies and irregularities.

BBC noted that the death of the football star who bagged the world cup for Argentina in 1986 has placed the world of football in mourning and prompted questions about his death. Despite his successful football career, Maradona was reported to have an alcohol addiction and used cocaine, dubbing his personal life troubled.

Maradona played for different teams during his tenure in the field. The football star played for Barcelona, Boca Juniors, Napoli, Seville, and Argentinos Juniors. Maradona was also hailed as one of the greatest soccer players of all time.

During the 1978 World Cup-winning squad, Maradona was excluded because it was felt that he was still too young during that time. However, the following year, Maradona led the national under-20 team to a junior World Cup championship.

Argentine football star Diego Maradona passed away at the age of 60 in his home in Buenos Aires.
