Argentine legendary sports figure, Diego Maradona has called for his daughter to be jailed amid a poisonous legal dispute which has ripped his family apart.

According to The Sun UK, the Argentine footy legend, 57, is suing his ex-wife, Claudia Villafane, and his two daughters, Gianinna and Dalma, alleging that they stole around £3.4million from him.

The iconic World Cup winner - who played for clubs such as Boca Juniors, Barcelona and Napoli during his glittering career - has accused his family of transferring the stolen money to a bank account in Uruguay and also using the cash to buy property in the US.

Now a lawyer representing Maradona claims Gianinna, 28, visited Uruguay for a “few hours” back in August, reports Spanish news outlet Marca.

Villafane, who was married to the legendary footballer from 1998 until 2003, is accused of masterminding the alleged fraud by the soccer icon's legal team.

Former cocaine addict Maradona, who retired from playing in 1997, currently manages United Arab Emirates club Fujairah SC.
