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.

Mourinho would love to face Chelsea in Champions League final

[+] Text [-]

London - Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has said he would love to face his former club Chelsea in the final of the Champions League.

Mourinho said he still loves Chelsea, and if both the teams meet in the quarterfinals or the semifinals, it would be a very competitive tie.

"People can't understand how much I love Chelsea, and I know if I get them in the quarterfinals or the semi-finals, they would be great opponents," The Telegraph quoted Mourinho, as  saying.

"I'm happy Chelsea have got through, but I'd love to play them in the final," he said.

Chelsea overcame the odds at Stamford Bridge to progress to the last eight, overcoming a 3-1 first-leg defeat in Napoli to go through 5-4 on aggregate.

But Real Madrid had no problems as such in progressing, as the beat CSKA Moscow 4-1 in the second leg of their last 16 tie, for a 5-2 aggregate win.

The quarterfinal draws for the Champions League would come out on Friday.
