- Diego Maradona's daughter has revealed that the family will be taking legal action against her late father's lawyer
- Matias Morla had claimed Dalma was banned from attending the icon's funeral
- The 33-year-old actress found the statement unpleasant and branded the lawyer a 'chicken'
Dalma Maradona has labelled Diego Maradona's lawyer, Matias Morla, a “chicken” following his claims that she was barred from the legend's burial rites.
The 60-year-old Argentine passed on late last month after a suspected heart complication in his home country and he was laid to rest in a private ceremony a couple of days after.
She also confirmed on social media that the family will be investigating the icon's legal representative over recent claims.
Reports claim that Maradona and his former wife who gave birth to the 33-year-old actress had longstanding disputes over ownership of their properties.
And this was probably why Morla claimed the former Barcelona and Napoli star banned his daughter from his funeral as reported by SunSport.
Meanwhile, away from all the controversies, so many tributes are coming in for the former World Cup winner.
Napoli already named their stadium after him while others have done one thing or the other in honour of the 60-year-old.
Legit.ng earlier reported that three-time FIFA World Cup winner, Pele, says late Diego Maradona was incomparable in an emotional message he wrote in honour of the Argentine seven days after his demise.
The 1986 World Cup winner was confirmed dead last week at the age of 60 after a suspected heart condition in his home country.
And this came a few days after returning from the hospital where he underwent brain surgery to remove a blood clot.
