The Argentine Lautaro Martínez, Inter player, was sentenced this Wednesday by the Court of Milan (north) to compensate the family of a former employee who died shortly after the unfair firing of the forward.
Lautaro hired a 27-year-old Argentine woman in September 2021 to act as a nanny at his residence in Milan, but the young woman fell ill and was fired on July 10, 2022, for being overworked. of the number of days of sick leave allowed.
The worker was absent for 49 days and the Court estimated that 67.5 days should have been due, so it considered the dismissal “null and illegitimate” because the compensation was not calculated correctly, according to the judgment revealed by Corriere della Sera. .
The former nanny, who lived at the player’s house under an indefinite contract, received a bad diagnosis when he arrived at the hospital and died in January, so now the Argentine player has to pay the family in the amount he should receive. if he respects the leave declared by the judge as legitimate, the 67.5 days, as well as all the costs of the judicial process.
Lautaro hired the woman eight months before the first symptoms appeared.
The lawyers of the deceased “are satisfied with the professional result achieved”, although they regret “with deep bitterness the evolution and especially the epilogue of the matter, which emphasizes how one can be a good professional on the soccer field but did nothing but score own goals. in life”.
Lautaro Martínez defends himself in the networks
Lautaro, for his part, concentrated on the team preparing for the qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru, defending himself through social networks with a message with his wife and one of his lawyers accusing the family of the deceased trying to get the money from them. .
“I decided to keep silent for a long time in respect of a family that we never had. But I will not let them pollute mine,” he declared on Instagram.
“We hired a man who was sick, a lifelong friend, until unfortunately he could not continue to work because his illness did not allow it. in the hospital when he fainted, helped to treat, with accommodation with the family we had to convince to come and take care of their dying daughter.
“They waited until their daughter was almost dead and there was no way to try to get the money from us. And not only that, but after her death they continued to insist and it turned out very badly, no it can be done in any way. .Now, after the sentence came out that they won’t get a single euro because it’s not worth it, because our help, GREAT HELP, we gave it to him when we had to do it, did they take it to try to defile us? What kind of person do you have to think about exploiting the death of a child to get money,” he said.
