Man Utd players disappointed not to meet US President Barack Obama

Manchester United players were disappointed not to meet with US President Barack Obama during their tour of the White House.

On Wednesday night the team beat the MLS All-Stars -- including former United star David Beckham -- 4-0 at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.

Striker Michael Owen tweeted, "Had a tour around The White House. Unfortunately never met The President as he was locked in meetings but a great experience all the same."

Teammate Federico Macheda went further, the Manchester Evening News reported, tweeting that missing Obama was, "So disappointing."
