Diana and her husband struggled to support her son financially

Diana's children, Angel, Vanesa, and Evelyn, used to help his parents by working with him at their local coal yard. 

Even though they wanted to support their son, Angel, to develop his career in football, their low income made it difficult for them to keep up with purchasing football boots and other expenses. 

After becoming a successful footballer, to repay his parents for everything they did, Angel pays a significant amount of his salary to his parents.

Diana and her family received a death threat

According to Dailymail, on Monday, 25th March 2024, Diana and her family received a death threat

The local media reported that a car left a sign in front of the private neighborhood where the Di Maria family resides. The sign said,

Tell your son Angel not to come back to Rosario because we will kill a family member. Not even Pullaro is going to save you. We don't leave paper notes. We leave bullets and dead people behind. 

The threat resulted after Angel said a week ago that he wanted to end his playing career at his boyhood club, Rosario Central

The death threat came amid the intense increase in drug violence by drug trafficking groups, which has caused the Di Maria family to be even more scared. 

According to the local media, the motivation behind the threat remains unclear, and the police are also not able to discard any lines of investigation.
