- Diego Maradona's nurse has claimed that she lied about checking on him
- The former Barcelona star died after suffering a heart attack in his house
- Maradona was among the best strikers in the world during his time
One of the nurses who were employed to look on Diego Maradona has reportedly claimed that she lied about the information she gave on checking the Argentine legend before he died.
Diego Maradona's death came a shocking one for all football fraternities in the world considering how he was able to change the face of soccer during his active playing time.
The world was made to understand that Diego Maradona suffered a heart attack while sleeping in his house and failed to regain consciousness before he passed on.
After having a successful operation, Diego Maradona's family decided to employ some nurses who were monitoring his health status from morning till night.
According to the latest report on UK Sun, a nurse who was on night shift told private medial firm Medidom that she had checked Diego Maradona by 6.30am in the morning and claimed the Argentine was breathing well.
The one who took over morning shift also claimed that she heard Maradona using the toilet by 7.30am but did not enter his room.
She then claimed she tried to check on Diego Maradona's vital signs at 9:20am but he refused.
The report added that the nurse who was on morning shift did not do what she claimed and was made to lie in her report to the private medical firm.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh had reported how Diego Maradona last made his last international appearance for Argentina during their second group game against Nigeria at the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the United States.
He was 33 years of age at that time as he was obviously the star of the match, but the South American team had to battle for victory after Samson Siasia had put the Super Eagles ahead as early as the 8th minute.
Argentina levelled-up through Claudio Caniggia in the 21st minute after goalkeeper Peter Rufai spilt a free-kick to his path as the striker followed up with a rebound to make it 1-1.
And barely seven minutes later, Maradona then broke the hearts of Nigerians when he cheekily caught the Nigerian defence unaware as he passed to Caniggia on the left flank before striker ‘wired’ the ball into the far post leaving Rufai hapless in goal.
