President Obama welcomes MLS champions Colorado Rapids to the White House, compares himself to Messi
Another political leader at No. 10
MLS champions Colorado Rapids presented President Obama with a ‘OBAMA 10’ personalised shirt during a visit to the White House.
The squad received a reception from Obama to mark their first MLS title.
After receiving his number 10 shirt, the President commented “that’s me and Messi”!
And it turns out when you’re the first black President of the USA you can get away with a slightly racist joke!
Commenting on the international make-up of the Rapids’ squad, Obama said: “I understand that the night before the final Kosuke Kimura made a very inspirational speech, but it was in Japanese so no-one could understand what he was saying.”
