Football legend Diego Maradona will soon have a whole football team with his own children. In addition to his five well-known descendants, the 58-year-old Argentine apparently witnessed three other children during his time in Cuba (2000-2005), which he has not officially recognized as his own.
The age and gender of the offspring are publicly unknown so far, but they should come from two different women.
The two mothers are demanding alimony from Maradona, who has to appear in Cuba’s capital, Havana. “Diego will fulfill his responsibilities,” announced his lawyer Matias Morla on the Argentine television channel Canal Trece.
In Cuba, Maradona kept coming back from 2000 to 2005 to have his drug addiction treated.
Giannina Maradona, one of the acknowledged daughters, took the family addition with humor. “Only three are left to form a team of eleven players, “the 29-year-old wrote on Instagram.
The five previously known children of Maradona between the ages of six and 32 years come from three different women.
