Marado denies row with partner

Madrid, Feb 16: Argentine football legend Diego Marado has denied media reports suggesting that police were called to a hotel where he supposedly had a heated argument with his partner. The football icon was here to attend Wednesday night’s Champions League pre-quarterfil first leg tie between Real Madrid and poli.

“I want to inform that I am in Madrid enjoying my family and waiting for poli to play in the Champions League,” Marado commented on his official Facebook account. “My lawyer Matias Morla contacted the Spanish authorities. There are no complaints and nobody was able to explain to me the reason for this media show,” he added.

The police were called to the Eurostars Suites Mirasierra hotel after they were notified of an alleged argument between the former player and his girlfriend. Media outlets reported that neither Marado nor his partner was injured. So the police left without opening an investigation. “I’m having a great time, let them tell their stories…,” Marado said. IANS
