MARADONA DENIED US VISA

Football legend, Diego Maradona has been denied entry into the USA after he insulted President Donald Trump.

His lawyer, Matias Morla confirmed that Maradona was denied Visa to the US after he granted an interview to Venezuelan TV station 'TeleSur',  where he described Trump as a puppet.

Matias said: "You can imagine, I was in the embassy and I said 'Diego, please don't talk about the United States. Because the interview was with TeleSur and I know how these things go. And the second question was 'What do you think of Donald Trump'?

"He said 'Donald Trump is a chirolita (a slang term for dummy or puppet)?' Morla said that following Maradona’s controversial comments, he told the ex-player, "After this, I said I'm going to have to represent you in Miami instead."

At the time of the interview, Maradona, 57, was in the process of applying for a visa to the States, which was subsequently denied.


The football legend who's currently managing Al Fujairah, a club based in the Arab Emirates needed to travel to Miami, Florida, to face a trial involving his ex-wife Claudia Villafane.
