    Liverpool seek to land knockout blow on Chelsea

    By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool can eliminate one of their two rivals from the Premier League title race by beating Chelsea on Sunday and the way the dice is rolling for them they might even have one hand on the trophy by the end of the weekend.

    Benzema strike gives Real edge over holders Bayern

    By Iain Rogers MADRID (Reuters) - Real Madrid struck early through Karim Benzema and comfortably held Bayern Munich at bay to beat the holders 1-0 on Wednesday and move a step closer to a first Champions League final in 12 years. Chasing a record-extending 10th European crown, Real were content to cede possession to the slick Bundesliga champions in the semi-final, first leg and created much the better chances with a series of trademark counter attacks. Benzema’s 19th-minute goal came from …

    By Rex Gowar BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina must create the right team climate to give the world's best player Lionel Messi the right support to enable him to shine at the World Cup in Brazil, coach Alejandro Sabella said on Wednesday. Sabella also said Argentina's status among the favourites would be countered by the fact they will be playing in the backyard of the most successful team in the competition with five titles. Messi has had a troubled few months and been the butt of …

BESUT, 7 Ogos (Bernama) -- Sedang ibu lain bergembira bersama anak-anak yang

pulang untuk berhari raya di kampung, sebaliknya bagi ibu wira negara ASP

Zulkifli Mamat yang terkorban semasa serangan pengganas Sulu di Lahad Datu,

Sabah, pada 1 Mac lalu tidak dapat menahan kesedihan kerana kehilangan anak yang

disayangi.

"Kalau dulu, apabila menjelang hari raya, Zulkifli pasti sampai sehari

sebelum bagi menjengok saya di sini tetapi kini segala-galanya sudah berubah,"

kata Khadijah Ismail, 64, ketika ditemui di kediamannya di Kampung Kubang Ikan,

Gong Bayor di sini hari ini.

Menurutnya setiap tahun bila ketibaan hari raya Zulkifli pulang ke kampung

bersama isteri Nor Aziah Noor, 28, bersama dua anaknya Mohamad Akmaludin, 5 dan

Mohamad Akil, 1, dari Ipoh, Perak.

Katanya kenangan lalu masih terbayang-bayang ketika anaknya yang sebelum

terkorban bertugas di Briged Utara, Pasukan Gerakan Am (PGA) Hulu Kinta, Perak

itu muncul di pintu rumah dengan membawa pelbagai buah tangan dan persediaan

untuk masakan pagi raya.

Bagaimanapun Khadijah reda dengan keadaan tersebut dan telah cuba untuk

melupakannya dengan kehadiran anak-anaknya yang lain pada tahun ini.

"Dua lagi anak-anak makcik termasuk isteri Zulkifli yang kini tinggal di

Perlis dijangka akan tiba pada hari raya kedua nanti," katanya.

Ditanya tentang sumbangan yang diterimanya dari pelbagai pihak sejak

kematian Zulkifli beliau berkata setakat ini kerajaan negeri Terengganu yang

menepati janjinya.

"Kini rumah mak cik yang dulunya usang telah dibaiki melalui Projek

Pemulihan Rumah oleh kerajaan Terengganu dengan kos belanja melebihi RM11,000,"

jelasnya.

Bagaimanapun katanya beliau terkilan dengan beberapa janji dari beberapa

syarikat yang pernah berjanji untuk menyumbang perabot rumah namun sehingga kini

tidak ditunaikan.

"Mak cik tidak mengharapkan sangat, tetapi bersyukur dengan usaha kerajaan

negeri membaiki rumah mak cik sehingga membolehkan kami tinggal dengan selesa,"

katanya.

Sementara itu di KANGAR, balu Allahyarham Nor Aziah berkata sambutan kali

ini amat sayu bagi beliau bersama dua anaknya dan membuat persiapan secara

sederhana.

"Amat sayu apabila anak-anak bertanya tentang ayah mereka dan ingin

berjumpa. Mereka kata, nak panjat syurga untuk jumpa ayah," katanya selepas

menerima kunjungan Ketua Polis Perlis Datuk Zull Aznam Haron bersama pegawai

kanan dan Persatuan Keluarga Polis (Perkep) Perlis di kediamannya.

Nor Aziah, seorang guru yang kini sarat mengandung tujuh bulan berterima

kasih kepada pelbagai pihak yang banyak membantunya termasuk Polis Diraja

Malaysia (PDRM).

Semasa kunjungan itu, Zull Aznam turut menyumbang hamper dan sejumlah wang

sumbangan pegawai dan anggota polis Perlis.

"Kami akan terus menjaga kebajikan keluarga perwira negara ini dan akan

terus membantunya," kata Zull Aznam.

Menurut Zull Aznam, pengorbanan Allahyarham ASP Zukifli kepada negara amat

besar dan perjuangannya mempertahankan kedaulatan negara perlu dicontohi semua

pihak.

Beliau berharap generasi muda juga menerapkan semangat kepewiraan

Allahyarham dalam jiwa mereka untuk menjadi warga negara yang patriotisme dan

cintakan negara.

    Chelsea may field weakened team v Liverpool - Mourinho

    Chelsea could field a weakened team in their top of the table Premier League game at Liverpool on Sunday, said manager Jose Mourinho after Tuesday's 0-0 draw at Atletico Madrid. With his second-placed side five points adrift of leaders Liverpool with only three games left, Mourinho is clearly prioritising next week's Champions League semi-final second leg at home to Atletico over their slim Premier League title hopes. The Portuguese, however, said he would speak to the hierarchy at Chelsea before making a final decision on the team he would field at Anfield on Sunday.

Cristiano Ronaldo, top scorer in this season's competition, struggled after returning from injury and record signing Gareth Bale only played the final 20 minutes following a bout of flu. Karim Benzema scored the winner in the 19th minute at the Bernabeu, setting Real up nicely ahead of Tuesday's second leg in Munich as they seek a first appearance in the final since they won their ninth European crown in 2002. "Without Bale and with Cristiano at 50 percent it is not easy to play so well," Ancelotti told a news conference.

    Mourinho's cautious Chelsea frustrate Atletico

    By Iain Rogers MADRID (Reuters) - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho returned to Spain with an ultra-cautious approach as his team earned a 0-0 draw with surprise Champions League semi-finalists Atletico Madrid in a first leg lacking in excitement on Tuesday. The stalemate at the Vicente Calderon, which Atletico coach Diego Simeone believes gives Chelsea a slight advantage in next week's return at Stamford Bridge, came at a cost for the 2012 winners, however. Goalkeeper Petr Cech was ruled out for the season after hurting his elbow, captain John Terry limped off with an ankle injury and midfielders Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel earned bookings that mean they are suspended for the second leg.

    Analysis - United must move fast with vital window looming

    By Ed Osmond LONDON (Reuters) - Manchester United must move quickly to appoint a new manager and give him maximum time to operate in what will be a critical transfer window for the club. A season of abject failure under David Moyes brought a swift end to the former Everton manager's reign at Old Trafford and United will have to act equally decisively to install the right man to try to revive their fortunes. Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal is the favourite and he has the necessary experience and record of success. Carlo Ancelotti of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund's Juergen Klopp have also been linked with the job, although the German appeared to rule himself out of contention on Tuesday.

    Man United act to halt slide as power shifts back to Liverpool

    By Keith Weir LONDON (Reuters) - The balance of power in English football has shifted from one famous U.S.-owned club to another, with Liverpool on course to win the league for the first time in 24 years while rivals Manchester United are in disarray and seeking a new manager. The Glazer family who own United showed their ruthless streak on Tuesday when they sacked manager David Moyes after less than one season in the job. Moyes inherited a Premier League-winning team from Alex Ferguson last year but a dismal campaign means United will miss out on a place in the UEFA Champions League - Europe's top club competition - next season for the first time since 1995. Failing to qualify will cost United upwards of 30 million pounds next year but the Glazers will have been prompted to act by fears of a long barren streak of the kind from which Liverpool are emerging.
