Maradona’s younger brother, Hugo, dies one-year after player’s death

By News Desk

The Argentine former legend, Diego Maradona’s younger brother, Hugo, has been pronounced dead by medical experts after suffering a heart attack at the age of 52.

Hugo, who was also a professional footballer, died at his home near Naples, the city in which Diego played at his peak from 1984 to 1991.

The tragedy occurred 13 months after older sibling Diego, widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, died from cardiac arrest at the age of 60.

In a nomadic career that spans many years, the deceased footballer played in Italy, Spain, Japan, and Argentine leagues representing different teams.

Hugo Maradona joined Diego at Napoli in 1987 but failed to make an impact and went on to represent clubs including Ascoli and Rayo Vallecano.

“The thoughts of club president Aurelio De Laurentiis, vice president Edoardo De Laurentiis, officials, coaching staff, the players, and the whole SSC Napoli family are with the Maradona family after the sad passing of Hugo,” said Napoli in a statement.
