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.

Man City tops PL 'spending money on agents' fees' list

London -: Manchester City had spent more than any other Premier League side on agents' fees over the past year, with 10.54 million pounds going to player's representatives.

It is the second 12-month period in a row that City has topped the list, having spent 9.66 million pounds between 1 October 2010 and 30 September 2011.

Liverpool committed 8.6 million pounds to fees, while Queens Park Rangers spent 6.82 million pounds.

The 77 million pounds total spend by clubs between 1 October 2011 and 30 September 2012 is up 5.13 million pounds on the previous 12 months.

City, who won the Premier League title in 2011-12, have invested heavily to bring in a series of high-profile players since Sheikh Mansour took over the club in September 2008.

During the recent accounting period, City signed Jack Rodwell for 12 million pounds from Everton and also completed moves for Javi Garcia (16 million pounds from Benfica), Scott Sinclair (8 million pounds from Swansea), Matija Nastasic (12 million pounds from Fiorentina) and Maicon (undisclosed fee from Inter Milan).

The lowest spenders on agents' fees were newly promoted Southampton, who, with a total of 646,106 pounds, was the only one of the 20 top-flight clubs to spend less than one million pounds.
