Do you all think they should cancel?

"I don't think it's right for other people to tell our country how we should celebrate our 50th anniversary," Saad said.

The United tour was also part of the Visit Malaysia 2007 campaign and Abdullah said he would leave it to the organisers to inform the English club of their change of plans.

"We saw the reaction of the Asian football family and we have no choice," Abdullah said. "Malaysian fans will be disappointed. I sympathise but we know the wishes of the president and we have to support that."

Earlier, Blatter echoed Hammam's frustration at the timing of the United tour, which would steal the spotlight from the Jakarta final.

"We will be taking this case up at the FIFA Congress (at the end of this month in Zurich) and we will also contact the English FA," Blatter told delegates on Tuesday.

"It's not correct for European teams to play in Asia during the continent's biggest competition."

Hammam had previously described the proposed tour as "immoral and unethical", accusing United of being disrespectful towards Asia.

He publicly called on Abdullah, an AFC executive council member, to cancel the tour on Tuesday.
