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.

St. Petersburg - Defending Russian Premier League champions FC Zenit St. Petersburg produced one of their strongest shows this season to topple England's Liverpool 2-0 in the first leg of their round of 32 UEFA Europa League tie.

After a goalless first half Thursday night, two goals in three minutes from Brazilian striker Hulk and substitute Sergei Semak sealed the result for Zenit, and ensured that Liverpool will have an uphill battle to make it through to the next round.

The return leg is set for Liverpool's hallowed Anfield Feb 21. An early away goal for the Russian club will leave Liverpool needing to strike four times to progress to the last 16.
