The former star of Barcelona and Naples has also told his growing brood of children that after his death he will not leave anything behind because he is donating his fortune to a good cause.

In a video filmed from what seemed to be his home in Argentina, the 59-year-old retired football player manager, who fought fluid and drug addictions and weight problems, said: & I want to tell you that I am not killing at all, that I sleep peacefully because I work. & # 39;

Responding to new fears about his health, Giannini lit up last week by asking fans to pray for him & # 39; and claiming he was anesthetized with pills like a & # 39; caged lion & # 39 ;.

Maradona added: & I don't know what she meant to say or what she had interpreted.

& # 39; What I do know is that as you get older, people worry more about what you are leaving than about what you are going to do.

& # 39; I tell you everything that I am not going to leave anything behind, that I am going to donate it. I am not going to give away everything I earned by running during my life, I am going to donate it. & # 39;

He looked as if he was making a conscious effort to give a semblance of calm, but sometimes seemed to cheat on his words and added with a smile: & I am very healthy. Very healthy. Thank you. & # 39;

Giannina Maradona, one of his two adult daughters of the Argentinian by ex-wife Claudia Villafane, did not mention the person she referred to last week.

But her cryptic messages, posted in the aftermath of Maradona's 59th birthday last Wednesday, left most observers with little doubt that she was pointing her finger at her father.

She said in an Instagram story: & # 39; He doesn't die because his body decides, but they kill him inside without him realizing it.

& # 39; I don't believe in the NORMAL standard, but that is far from the reality it deserves. Please pray for him. & # 39;

She added in a second message: & # 39; Do you remember a zoo where you could take pictures with a giant lion?

& # 39; You could go into his cage and do it a little more & # 39; hugging & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Any resemblance to reality is purely coincidental. & # 39;

And in a third post written about a wall painting based on a picture of her father during his heyday with footballs that led her by the hand as a little girl she placed for the first time on his birthday, she added: & # 39; Give me your hand like that again, so I can lead you now. & # 39;

In June the retired footballer had to deny that he had Alzheimer's incurable disease.

He posted a video on his Instagram page in which he insisted that he & # 39; did not die & # 39; irreversible brain disorder and noticed the people behind the rumors: & # 39; Sons of know who. & # 39;

The retired footballer, who spoke after the Argentinian newspaper Cronica had published a report pointing to & # 39; neurological problems & # 39; and the & # 39; onset of Alzheimer's & # 39 ;, raged: & # 39; They lie, they lie. They talk about Alzheimer's disease and they don't know what it means.

& # 39; The word Alzheimer's is a terrible word. People with Alzheimer's die. I'm not dying. These sons of them know what they throw away to create confusion. I'm not confusing. & # 39;

His lawyer Matias Morla admitted that Maradona had stepped down as Dorados' Mexican manager to focus on his health and undergo shoulder and knee surgery, but added: In the light of reports, Diego Maradona suffers at the start of Alzheimer's disease. to state that none of the medical tests he has undergone prove such a thing. & # 39;

Maradona then underwent knee surgery in a private clinic in Buenos Aires and then boasted: & # 39; Today I was walking like I did when I was 15. & # 39;

Big football was also at the center of his health concerns last year, after he had to be helped out of his VIP box and helped by medical personnel when Argentina narrowly avoided an early World Cup exit in Russia with a dramatically late goal against Nigeria.

Two Spanish-language recordings that went viral – recorded by the same man and released shortly after the game – claimed he had a fatal heart attack.

One said that an adrenaline injection into his heart could not have saved him and the Argentinian team had yet to be told that he had died in the hospital.

A second shot of 42 seconds, a WhatsApp message sent to a mysterious man named Mati by someone who introduced himself as an Argentinian sports journalist in Russia, added: “They won't announce the news tomorrow. It is a family decision. & # 39;

Maradona responded with a four-digit reward to identify the person trying to deceive the world by believing he was dead.

Through his lawyer, he promised over £ 8,000 to anyone who could help him unmask the man responsible for killing him and forced him to make a statement confirming that he was alive but had exaggerated the white wine.

Maradona now manages Gimnasia y Esgrima in the Argentinian city of La Plata.

Last week he enjoyed a laugh at the expense of the fans of England by claiming that he would have scored his cheat 1986 World Cup quarter-final "Hand of God" goal with his right if VAR had existed.

Asked by a radio interviewer if he thought his controversial goal against England would have been excluded if VAR had been about 33 years ago, he said: & I wish we could turn back the clocks.

& # 39; I promise the English that I would not score the goal with my left hand, I would do it with my right. & # 39;

A 23-year-old brunette named Magali then emerged as the newest member of Maradona's ever-growing hatch, including two adult children born of extramarital affairs and a six-year-old boy named Diego Fernando by former girlfriend Veronica Ojeda.

The popular Argentine TV program Intrusos said she had a young daughter that would make the former Naples and Barcelona a grandfather again if he is confirmed as her father.

Allegedly she started legal proceedings in April to prove her blood connection.
