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.

Redknapp says Spurs' have not lost focus

London- Tottenham Hotspurs' manager Harry Redknapp has rejected suggestions that his team has lost its focus after it suffered a second defeat in a row, which has reduced their ten point lead at third place to just four.

The successive defeats have also sparked accusations that the club is struggling to put results together following Redknapp's emergence as a favorite to take over as England manager, but Redknapp is happy

with his team's efforts.

"You can't say the focus has been lost. I'm focused on this team and getting results here. The players know that as well. I don't have days off. I work all week for Tottenham," The Sun quoted Redknapp, as

saying.
 
"I don't feel disappointed at all because of how we played. There wasn't much I could change. The whole team functioned so well. Only one team should have been in front and we came in 1-0 down because

we didn't mark well and Wayne Rooney scored," he said.
 
"Even then I felt we could win it. We started the second half well, and David De Gea made a great save. Then we switched off at a throw-in and were 2-0 down," he added.

Redknapp said his sole aim is to secure the third position in the Premier League and finish above Arsenal and Chelsea.
 
"I couldn't have asked for more from the players. I want to finish third. I want to finish above Arsenal and Chelsea. That's the key for me. We're capable of doing that," he said.
