Manchester United have called off their friendly against a Malaysia XI which was scheduled to take place on July 18 as part of their Asia tour after seven of their players, including Wayne Rooney have been infected with the swine flu.
Their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson said in a statement: "We are sorry to disappoint our Malaysian fans for not coming, the lads are looking forward to try out the teh tarik and roti canai but it seems that they have to settle with just the picture of a roti canai in a postcard sent by one of our fan."
The virus was first caught by their star striker Wayne Rooney during his holiday with his wife Coleen in Mexico. He then single handedly spread the virus to his teammate during a shower session after training by playing buttgrind, a popular game among Man U players where they grind each others buttocks while singing in the shower. Although the identity of the other players who have contracted the virus was not made public, it is believed that Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Danny Welbeck, Federico Macheda, Park Ji Sung and Ben Foster has been infected by the virus and have been home quarantined.
The news will certainly break the hearts of Man U fans here who have been looking forward to this event since the tour was announced few months ago. Let's hear some comments from their die hard fans:
Abe: "Nateeeee babiiiii!!!"
Nazry: "Uuuu uuu UUUu (menangis)"
Arul: "Tak dapek den nak nolong eh ngabihkan boreh yo"
Tamir: "Demit baik aku simpan duit buat kahwin dengan Nazmin kesayangan"
Ise: "Babi meme nateeeee"
Luqman Salehudin: "Eiii nyampahhh i"
Andrew Chan: "Hamsaploooo!"
ProEvents, the tour organizer, when asked about the refund status commented: "Tiket yang sudah dibeli masih boleh digunakan untuk menghadiri mana-mana perlawanan Liga Super Malaysia, tetapi refund tidak akan diberikan..."
Haa haa korang jangan pergi woit nanti kena selsema babi baru tau. Jika hendak pergi jugak bawalah topeng agar korang tidak menyusahkan keluarga dan jiran tetangga nanti. Semoga korang berbahagia berjumpa idola masing-masing tetapi jangan seronok sangat jumpa sampai tak sembahyang asar dan maghrib ok berdosa tau.
