Malaysia will defy the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) and host Manchester United in July, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi insisted on Friday. [ESPN]

Well, I am a United fan for some 17 years, I would be glad if they do come. Problem is, I think they shouldn’t.

As far as I know, Malaysia signed a contract with AFC that barred Malaysia from promoting any other soccer event 10 days before the Asia Cup until 3 days after the final… Malaysia FA shouldn’t even agree on the United visit at the very beginning.

Regardless of the reasoning, a contract is a contract and should always be respected; unless AFC is giving the node, United shouldn’t come.

Imagine what would happen to the world if everyone shows no respect to contracts and promises.

Imagine your spouse make a promise to stay with your for life, and then decided to break off the relationship because he or she finds a better one.

    RM… I guess you are saying about prenuptial agreement that actually protects the rich from having half of their wealth lost if they do something fishy?

    AFC do feel threaten by MU’s visit, that’s for sure. I think that they are a bit over-concerned though, it’s not like I will be paying much attention to Asian Cup whether United are coming or not.

    To be honest… I only knew that the Asian Cup is going to be in June and July because of this proposed cancellation of MU’s visit. I am not sure if it was shame on me, or shame on FAM for the poor publicity for Asian Cup.

    cutiepie… it sure is.
