It's unclear if Morla has yet filed a lawsuit against Konami on Maradona's behalf; we've asked his office for further details, and are awaiting a response.
He is considered by many to be the game's greatest ever player.
But it seems the man responsible for The Hand of God that dispatched England from the '86 world cup isn't pleased with his inclusion, suggesting his permission was not sought by Konami. However, the retired Argentine player is apparently unhappy with the use of his likeness in PES 2017, at least according to an update to his official Facebook page. This includes guys like Ronaldo (the Brazilian one), Ronaldinho, Thierry Henry, Gary Lineker and Ronald Koeman.
As it turns out, Maradona has threatened to sue Konami due to alledly using his likeness in Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 without his permission. He added that his lawyer will "initiate the corresponding legal actions".

SpaceX claims that its Falcon 9 Heavy will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. Blue Origin, an aerospace company started by another tech billionaire, Jeff Bezos, already has reflown a rocket.
As of writing, Maradona is still accessible in PES 2017.
To make matters worse for Konami, it's rumoured that EA may be set to include Diego Maradona in Federation Internationale de Football Association 17, possibly as a legend for Ultimate Team. "I hope this is not another scam ..."
The Myclub mode, which is akin to FIFA's Ultimate Team mode, allows players to unlock, purchase and sell legendary players, and match them up with other current and past players.
The company states that they are using the likeness within the basis of the license.
