Hugo is the brother of Diego Armando Maradona, who spoke to Live – It is not D’Urso to talk about the disappearance of the great footballer. Diego appeared in connection with his wife Paola, to tell the link with the Argentine champion. Born in 1969, he is a football coach and former footballer in the role of midfielder. Just like Maradona, Hugo also played for Napoli, later playing in Ascoli (in 1987, the year of his engagement, he was in Serie A).
Thanks to his work as a footballer, he has traveled the world, living in Italy, Austria, Spain, Japan and Argentina. After retiring he returned to Naples, where he ran a football school for some time, later coached several teams, continuing to pursue a passion for football.
During the interview with Live – It is not the D’Urso, Hugo defended the memory of Maradona. “My brother hurt himself, he didn't ask anyone for anything – he clarified -. Ok? This is the first thing. Talking about a man who cannot defend himself does not seem nice to me ”. The former footballer passed away at the age of 60 and there are still many doubts about his death. "I am in communication with my sisters – explained Hugo to Barbara D’Urso -. The only one who was next to him was my nephew, my sister's son, who was like a son for Diego. There was the nurse, the doctors. He did not want anyone to enter the room, so the nurse was outside the door. I do not know what happened".
“I hope that my brother's life has not been neglected – concluded Hugo – and that there have been no medical errors. Now there is an investigation, the lawyers and the police in Argentina will see. I'm sorry, because if what the newspapers are saying is true, it hurts me twice as much because he didn't deserve to be left alone. But it just wasn't because my nephew was there, who has lived with him for a long time. As for the doctors, doctors and nurses, the investigations will clarify what happened ".
Paola, Maradona's sister-in-law also intervened on the matter: “I'm shocked – she said, moved -, you know I'm Neapolitan, for us it's D10s. I don't know what happened. I do not know"
