Abdullah Caught In Football Politics
Many Malaysians really wish that Prime Minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, stops talking from his nose. Many Malaysians also hope Abdullah stops listening to his son-in-law, Khairy Jamaluddin.
Last Saturday he said he wanted the Manchester United (MU) tour to Malaysia “to kick off as scheduled and hopes that the organisers or any other parties will not call it off.”
He added: “If United plays in KL, it will attract their supporters from Singapore, Thailand and other countries to come and watch. This is also the Government's intention in line with the Visit Malaysia 2007 campaign. We know that they are a great team and will be a huge attraction for football fans.”
When Abdullah made the above statement, was he aware that Khairy got him to intervene and support MU to come to Malaysia and clash with AFC Finals games because MU is Khairy’s favourite team?
Do you think Abdullah knows that AFC President, Mohammad Hammam, is struggling to promote Asian Football so that Asians will support Asian National teams more than European League teams?
Does Abdullah know that last year alone Malaysians spent nearly RM 1 billion buying merchandise of English Clubs. Is he aware if this amount of money was poured into Malaysian football, than the level and quality of Malaysian football would increase?
Abdullah knows nothing. Infact, he is good-for-nothing. How long more can Malaysians tolerate this type Prime Minister? Don’t you think Dr Mahathir Mohamad was right when he said recently that Malaysia had no place for such a weak Prime Minister? Think about it!!!
