After the farewell to the great champion, Maradona's legacy raises discussions: his son Diego Jr wanted to have his say
After the farewell to the great champion Diego Armando Maradona, the pain of his fans and the whole world of football has given way to discussions and controversies about his legacy.
In fact, as soon as the world gave its final farewell to the Pibe de oro, the attention of the media focused entirely on the heritage that Maradona would have left to his children. Between houses, investments, luxury cars, a ring (and there are those who even say a tank), the legacy of the legend of football would be around 75 million dollars.
To enjoy it should be the five recognized children, Dalma Nerea and Giannina Dinorah born from the marriage with Claudia Villafañe, Diego Jr, the result of the fleeting relationship with a Neapolitan woman named Cristiana Sinagra, Jana, who the footballer had from a relationship with Valeria Sabalain and little Diego Fernando, the youngest son of the champion born from his history with Veronica Ojeda.
In an interview with the Spanish newspaper Marca, Diego Jr spoke of the relationship he had with his father, of his pain now that he is gone and expressed his position on that legacy that is causing so much discussion.
Destroyed by pain, he told the Spanish newspaper: “I'm sick, I have trouble sleeping. I forgot what it means to take a break. I close my eyes and my head does not disconnect. I try to isolate myself and sometimes I try to watch a bit of television. Not being able to reach him in Argentina was the most painful aspect ".
Maradona a few weeks before his death, had undergone a delicate operation: “I never thought of the worst – confessed his son Diego -. We all knew how he was, but we always tried to lift him ”.
The division of assets between the children is the most delicate issue, and in fact Diego Armando Junior has reserved harsh words on the issue. “I want to have the freedom to choose how my father mourns. And I believe that silence and few words are the best remedy now ”.
Diego Jr then paused to recall the special relationship he had with his father, despite the distance and the long legal battle that then led to his recognition: “When we discussed football he was almost always right. I liked it a lot because I didn't have these opportunities before. I have seen many matches with him, with Napoli, with the national team. He was involved with who should play, who shouldn't, but I never answered him. We have always had a very open and healthy relationship. I've never quarreled with my father "
