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.

Milan-Juventus game may decide Serie A title, says Allegri

[+] Text [-]

Rome -  AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri said the game between his side and Juventus Saturday could decide the Italian Serie A title.

The Rossoneri beat Cesena 3-1 on the road to leapfrog Juventus in the leadership role, although the Bianconeri have a game in hand.

"We are happy to be up there, even with an extra match played. Now we have a whole week to prepare for Saturday's big clash and I am certain we will put in a great performance," Allegri was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic sat out the second of his three-match ban, but Milan have lodged an appeal.

"If Ibra is available, then he will play against Juventus. If he isn't, then we have others who can do well. All we can do is wait for the result of the appeals process," Allegri said

"On Saturday it will be a fascinating encounter that may well decide the title."

Allegri was not entirely content with Sunday's 3-1 result in Cesena.

"The lads put in a great performance up until the third goal, then we allowed Cesena too much of the initiative and sat back, as we just stopped running in attack.

"Urby Emanuelson has great technique and does not often give the ball away. Other than the goal, Muntari also played well and is highly motivated, as he wants to forget the recent negative spell of his career," he said.
