Premier League star Nolito earns a reported £100,000 a week, yet has left his mum to live in a filthy squat after telling her to “beg” to survive.

The winger, signed for £13.8million by Manchester City this summer, turned his back on poverty-stricken Rocio Agudo Duran after a furious row on WhatsApp.

He even advocated her stealing so she could eat, while he reportedly takes home £400,000 a month. Distraught Rocio, 46, tonight revealed the pair have not spoken since the argument in July 2015.

In one of the messages, Nolito told her “Vete al carajo” – Spanish for “f*** off” – and accused her of talking to him only when she needs something.

And when his destitute mum accused him of empty promises regarding help for her family, the Spanish striker blasted her for having a “black soul”.

In another message, he told Rocio, “If you want to beg outside the supermarket, do it. And if you want to steal, steal” after she criticised him for employing a stranger to clean his house, instead of giving her the job.

Rocio had raged: “You don’t stick up for your mum. You lie to the press that you look after us.” Nolito, born Manuel Agudo Duran, stopped paying for her apartment in the town where he was brought up.
Speaking from the rundown, repossessed property she now calls home, Rocio broke down as she told of trying to rebuild her life with her six-year-old twins, Candela and Jesus, after years of heroin addiction, prison and prostitution to feed her habit.

Clutching a picture she keeps of Nolito as a baby, she said: “I’m sure no other mum of a Premier League footballer is living like me. I broke into the house I’m in now last October, after Nolito stopped paying the rent on another place I was living in nearby.

“But I’m obviously terrified I could be turfed out on the streets at any time with two young kids and nowhere to go.”

She added: “It’s not an ideal place to raise two young children. The house is full of damp and holes rats get in through.”
Rocio says the house is cramped and squalid

Nolito, 29, has never spoken about Rocio publicly, but openly regards his maternal grandparents Manuel and Dolores as his mum and dad.

He dedicates every goal he scores to Manuel, who died nearly eight years ago.
Rocio broke into the property last October and has been there ever since

He once said: “I was brought up by my grandfather and grandmother, they helped to educate me and they provided everything they possibly could for me.

“My grandfather was like a father to me and it was he who bought me my first football.” But the rift with his mum is an open secret in their native town Sanlucar de Barrameda near Jerez, southwestern Spain, where Nolito is considered a hero.

He still holidays with wife Laura and their three children in one of the three homes he owns there.

Rocio’s squat, where she lives with the twins – born as she served nearly 13 years’ back-to-back sentences for drugs-related crimes – is a 10-minute drive from the riverside villa where Nolito spent part of the summer.

Rocio said she stopped taking drugs in prison, after two decades of drug abuse, when she found out she was pregnant – after an “intimate visit” from the twins’ dad. The youngsters lived with her in jail until they were three.

She added: “I got addicted to smoking heroin after being thrown out of home after a family row when I was 17 and Nolito was 21 months. I fell in with the wrong crowd. You name it, I took it. I used to shoplift to make money to buy drugs, but most of my cash came from prostitution.”

Profiles about Nolito state his mum handed over custody to her parents when he was a toddler.

But Rocio insisted no paperwork was signed and she was on talking terms with Nolito until shortly before the row.

She claimed they fell out when she tried to get Nolito to provide proper accommodation for her disabled brother Marco Antonio, who died last December.


Rocio said: “He was living in a storeroom under the first-floor flat where Nolito grew up, because he couldn’t get up the stairs. I pleaded with my son to buy him a proper place so he could live in dignity, but all I ever got were promises.

“He’s been persuaded by his other family and so-called friends that an ex-junkie, jailbird mum is not good for his image, and having me out the way means more money for them.”

She added: “I did what I could for him throughout his childhood and he visited me in prisons around Spain, and even arranged for me to get home from jail when I was released, before paying my rent for nearly a year and a half.

“Money has changed my son. He didn’t like it that I was the only one telling him things straight, instead of applauding everything he does like the hangers-on he surrounds himself with.”

After their row, Rocio stood outside his luxury detached home with a poster that said: “I am Rocio Agudo Duran, Nolito’s mother. I’m looking for work and he won’t help me and I find myself forced to ask for food for my children.”

Her mum Dolores declined to speak without Nolito’s permission but claimed: “Everything my daughter says is lies. The way she’s bad-mouthed him is awful. I cannot understand how a mother could do that to her own flesh and blood.

“Nolito’s such a humble person, a real friend of his friends. He always helped her and the youngsters. The problem was she kept asking for more and more.”

Nolito’s representatives and Manch-ester City were asked for a comment.
