Diego Maradona denied visa to enter US to go to Disney World with his family | THE SIDELINE

Arguably the greatest soccer player in the history of the game — and a certified crazy man — Diego Armando Maradona has been denied a visa to enter the United States for a Disney World vacation with his 4-year-old grandson.

"El Diego," 52, was hoping to travel from his current location in Dubai, enter the US and spend a few days at the Magic Kingdom with the grandson, one of his daughters (not the one that's actually the mother of the grandson, though) and his new soccer-playing girlfriend Rocio Oliva — who, by the way, is four years younger than the daughter, Dalma.

The grandson, by the way, is the child of his other daughter, 24-year old Giannina, and ex-boyfriend Sergio Agüero, of Manchester City fame. Agüero broke it off with Giannina a few months ago, and we can only assume that Diego was none too pleased about this.

This also isn't the first time Maradona has been denied entry into the US. A source close to the story for The Sun revealed the following: “It was a bit of a kick in the teeth for Diego. The family were really excited about the holiday."
