The Spanish newspaper “Marca” said that there are currently 6 people who want to exhume the body of famous footballer Diego Armando Maradona in order to prove their lineage to him, and that they are his children. The newspaper pointed out that one of these six is a 19-year-old young man named Santiago Lara, who appeared in front of the media on Monday and asked to take Maradona’s body out and take DNA samples so that the test could be done.
Lara said, “I am sure that I am the son of Maradona, I was very similar to him, but I did some things to change my appearance, so as not to look like him. My mother died when I was three years old, and my mother’s lawyer told me that I was Maradona’s son.”
“My family raised me thinking that it would be better for me not to know that Maradona was my father, but at the age of 13 I was able to find out,” Lara added.
Lara confirmed that he had contacted Maradona’s lawyer, Matthias Morla, and said, “I tried to approach, but I could not speak to him at all.” Never, he concluded, “That’s why I stopped looking for them.”
