However, according to the Mirror, Diego Maradona claimed he was denied a visa to the US because he insulted Trump on TV.

Explaining what happened on the Argentine TV show 'Buenos días América', Maradona's lawyer Matias Morla said Maradona used a slang term to insult Trump on TV.

"I am very sorry that Italy didn't make it to the World Cup. The Italians always offer a certain flair to the tournament," former Argentina player Diego Maradona wrote on his Facebook page play Maradona (AFP/File)

 

The lawyer said Maradona granted an interview to Venezuelan TV channel TeleSur when he was in the process of obtaining the visa.

“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)?"

"After this, I said I'm going to have to represent you in Miami instead,” he added.

The footballing legend who is currently managing Al Fujairah, in the Arab Emirates was first kicked out of the US after he was caught taking drugs during the 1994 World Cup.
