Dwight Yorke

Manchester: Former Manchester United's treble-winning striker Dwight Yorke has been denied entry to the United States due to a visa problem stemming from an Iranian stamp on his passport received after having represented the World Stars in a charity football match against Iranian Stars in Tehran in 2015.

"I couldn't quite believe what was happening. I have lost count of the number of times I have been to America, I love the country, yet I was being made to feel like a criminal," he said on Friday.
