Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Van Basten named new coach of SC Heerenveen

The Hague (Netherlands) -  Former football coach of the Dutch national side Marco van Basten was unveiled as the new coach of Dutch Eredivisie club Heerenveen, on a two-year deal  starting July 1.

Van Basten Monday succeeded Ron Jans, whose contract at Heerenveen was not extended. It is his first job as a coach in three years.

"I am very happy to be here. We had some good talk and that gave me confidence. I like Heerenveen, and I think I am going to have a good time here," Van Basten was quoted as saying by  Xinhua.

Heerenveen are currently in third place in the Eredivisie and have qualified for the semi-finals of the Dutch Cup.

In 2011, Van Basten was one of the candidates to become technical director at Ajax. But he cancelled his candidacy himself. Last year, he was also close to becoming coach of Sporting  Portugal.

The 47-year-old is considered one of the best Dutch players ever. He led the Dutch team to the European title in 1988 and, among other trophies, he captured the Europa Cup (1989, 1990) and the Intercontinental Cup (1989, 1990) with AC Milan.
