"This just does not seem like a simple heart attack to me," he told an Argentine radio station on Sunday
Diego Maradona's former doctor who treated him for three decades has dropped a bombshell reveling some unknown information about his death.
Dr Alfredo Cahe, allegedly said that he believes the Argentine sportsman's death was a "form of suicide" and that he was "tired of living", reports Daily Mail.
"This just does not seem like a simple heart attack to me," he told an Argentine radio station on Sunday.
He claims he asked Maradona afterwards whether he wanted to kill himself, and said the footballer replied: "Maybe someday, what do I know?"
In the days before Maradona's death, Dr Cahe said he spoke with Veronica Ojeda - one of the footballer's ex-girlfriends and mother of one of his children.
He claims Veronica told him, "You know Diego said he was fed up with living and didn't want to carry on anymore because he has done everything."
Upon learning that Maradona had spent his final days after brain surgery in a single bedroom of his house, Cahe concluded the sportsman had indeed been depressed.
"Diego was tired," Dr Cahe told the radio hosts, before adding: "All of these events were the consequence of suicide."
Dr Cahe also claimed to have seen Maradona in hospital in Argentina during his final days, and was critical of the care he was receiving at the time.
He accused the hospital of failing to prepare a proper nursing plan for the hero, of neglecting him while he was in the hospital, and of discharging him too early.
"For me there was negligence, recklessness and inexperience, all three," he said.
"In the clinic I did not see him with total monitoring and I did not see him care with a constant and continuous nursing plan.
"He was not taken care of properly. He should have remained hospitalised, not in a house that was not prepared [for him]."
Maradona died aged 60 in his residence located in the city of Tigre located in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires on 25th November.
Medics are also said to have detected dilated cardiomyopathy, a medical condition in which the heart muscle becomes weakened and enlarged and cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body.
Pulmonary edema, fluid accumulation in the lung's tissue and air spaces, are caused by heart problems in most cases.
