Luque, 39, has denied claims of wrongdoing from Maradona’s family, who suggest the late football star was not properly cared for before his death.

In November 2020, Mr. Luque said: “If I’m responsible for anything when it comes to Diego, it was loving him, caring for him, improving his life to the end, and extending it.”

He described the Argentinian idol as an “impossible” patient who hated doctors but had a special relationship with him.

And he added: “I don’t blame myself for anything. It’s very unfair what’s happening. Someone is trying to find a scapegoat here when I don’t see one anywhere.”

Diego Maradona died at his home in November at the age of 60 following a heart attack after a brain operation.
