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.

London - Former England captain David Beckham has been offered a lucrative two-year deal to join Qatar's domestic football league.

According to a top source in the oil-rich country when it comes to money offers, Qatar is the biggest by far, the Sun reports.

Senior figures in the Q League feel Beckham has the total package and they need to up the interest in the game there around the world, it further reported.

A lucrative, long-term PR role as an ambassador for the Qatar 2022 World Cup could also follow for the ex-Manchester United midfielder, the paper said.

Beckham insisted he wants to carry on playing after quitting MLS side LA Galaxy following five years in America, the paper added.

The source added that the officials in the Qatar have seen what Beckham did in the US league and feel that type of transformation could be priceless.

The source further said Beckham is one of the few, possibly the only, soccer player who has the tools to revive the image of the game here.
