Prosecutors in Argentina asked the panel to investigate Maradona’s medical team after the player’s death in November last year.

Maradona died of a heart attack at his home in Buenos Aires, aged 60.

He had successful surgery on cerebral hemorrhage in early November and had to be treated for alcohol dependence.

One of the greatest football players of all time, Maradona had a troubled personal life marred by cocaine and alcohol abuse.

The death of Maradona, who captained Argentina to the glory of the 1986 World Cup, plunged the world of football into mourning, raising questions about his treatment.

A few days after his death Argentine prosecutors launched an investigation into the doctors and nurses involved in his care.

In March, prosecutors convened a panel of 20 medical experts to investigate the cause of Maradona’s death and to determine if there had been any negligence.

The panel’s results were reported by the Argentine media on Friday.

In a 70-page report, the panel said Maradona was seriously ill 12 hours before his death. During the period “he was not properly monitored”, the report said.

Quoting the report, Argentine newspaper Clarín said the panel accused Maradona’s medical team of giving up his life “in the future”.

Medical experts said Maradona would have a better chance of surviving if he could be treated at a medical facility instead of his home, the newspaper reported.

The panel concluded that the action taken by the Maradona health team was “sufficient, inadequate and negligent”, according to Reuters news agency, which received a copy of the report.

Maradona’s personal physician Leopoldo Luque, 39, and his psychiatrist are among the medical professionals being investigated by prosecutors.

Now that the medical panel has released its report, prosecutors will decide whether to bring any charges. Clarín said the murder of a man could be among the charges under consideration.

Legal proceedings were prompted by a complaint filed by Maradona’s two daughters. They expressed concern about their father’s treatment after brain surgery.

Dr Luque has not been charged. He denies any wrongdoing.

At an emotional press conference in November, Dr Luque cried, saying he had done everything he could to save a friend’s life.

At one point, a doctor shot at reporters: “Do you want to know what I’m responsible for? By loving her, by caring for her, by having extended her life, by improving it to the end.”

The doctor said he had done “everything he could, up to the impossible”.
