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.

Fergie warns Rooney against missing anymore penalties!

London -  Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has warned Wayne Rooney that his success rate from the penalty spot must improve.

Although Rooney scored from the spot in United's 3-1 win at Braga in midweek, he missed in last weekend's 2-1 win over Arsenal.

And Ferguson has told the United star that he cannot afford any more slip-ups.

"Wayne has to accept he has to have a better strike rate with penalties,' said the United boss. 'He has to produce better, but he's capable. His penalty the other night, even though he slipped, hit the target and that's important," the Daily Mail quoted Ferguson, as saying.

"You need to make sure the keeper has to make a great save. If he does, full marks to him. The one thing about Rooney is that it wouldn't matter if it was a World Cup final or a League Cup first round game against an amateur team, he would still want to score," he added.

Rooney has missed four penalties from nine in 2012 but the United boss said there was no question of him relinquishing his spot-kick duties.

"No chance. But he will not want to miss another one," he said.
