Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars 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.

Mancini makes move to swoop Atlético Madrid's Radomel Falcao to Man City

London - Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is understood to have met with representatives of Colombian striker Radomel Falcao to persuade the 45 million pound striker to join the club.

It comes after Falcao, the 26-year-old Colombian, is expected to leave Atlético Madrid at the end of this season.

Mancini flew to Madrid to speak to Jorge Mendes, and more than one meeting has taken place, which suggests City are pushing hard to outmanoeuvre Chelsea and Real Madrid, The Telegraph reports.

According to the paper, Falcao wants a 6 million dollar salary after tax, which means around double that in gross terms, so the full cost would be around 85 million pounds.

Mendes also represents Real coach Jose Mourinho, which has made that club favourite to sign the striker, while he has also kept strong links with Chelsea, the paper said.

However, Chelsea could only acquire Falcao should they sell Fernando Torres and may concentrate on signing younger attacking players such as Bayer Leverkusen's André Schürrle, it added.
