THE fans didn’t show up.

But neither did the defensive lines of Melbourne Victory and Ulsan Hyundai.

So for the 5124 that did venture to AAMI Park for Tuesday night’s Asian Champions League opener they were treated to a six-goal thriller.

But while the drunken stupor this game was in at various times may have temporarily numbed the pain Victory fans are feeling at their side’s current plight, this morning there is a harsh hangover to contemplate from the 3-3 draw.

Diego Maradona, death, daughters, robbery, fortune

Published

Diego Maradona’s two daughters were accused of robbing and abandoning him in a new twist over his AUD$108 million fortune.

According to The Sun, the football icon’s lawyer Matias Morla hit back after Dalma and Gianinna said he had kidnapped their father.

His broadside came a day after the daughters and three of their siblings had Diego’s sister Lili evicted from the Maradona family home.

The lawyer said Lili and her sisters remained close to the Argentina great up to his death aged 60 in November last year — but that he was at war with his daughters.

Morla said: “He was fighting to the death with Dalma and Gianinna — he felt betrayed and robbed.

“The girls do not love me since we cut their credit cards in June 2014. They abandoned Maradona. He died alone.”

Maradona was suffering from liver, kidney and cardiovascular disorders but there were no signs of alcohol or narcotics consumption in his autopsy.

The public prosecutor in San Isidro, a northern suburb of the capital Buenos Aires, published the results of Maradona’s autopsy last December.

It was ordered as part of an investigation into his death to see if there was any negligence or recklessness in the health care he was provided.

Gianinna Maradona took to social media to comment on the autopsy result.

She wrote: “All the sons of b****** waiting for my dad’s autopsy to reveal drugs, marijuana and alcohol. I am not a doctor but I saw him very swollen. A robotic voice. It wasn’t his voice …”
