Argentine football icon Diego Maradona has been denied entry to the United States after he insulted US President Donald Trump on television.
Maradona was due to fly to Miami to take part in a court case involving his ex-wife Claudia Villafane.
But Maradona, who currently manages United Arab Emirates side Al Fujairah, has again been refused a visiting visa to enter the US.
In an interview with Venezuelan network ‘TeleSur’, Maradona called Trump a ‘chirolita’.
The term is a common insult in Argentina that refers to people who are under the orders of others as puppets.
Maradona’s lawyer Matias Morla will now represent his client at the hearing in Miami.
