    'Black beasts' Bayern must step up in Madrid, says Guardiola

    Pep Guardiola has said Bayern Munich will only beat Real Madrid in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final with a vastly improved display after their lacklustre Bundesliga win at bottom-side Eintracht Braunschweig. European champions Bayern ended a run of three Bundesliga games without victory with an unimpressive 2-0 win at Braunschweig on Saturday, four days before their semi-final, first-leg at Madrid's Bernabeu. "We won't reach the Champions League final unless we put in a commanding …

KUANTAN, 26 Julai (Bernama) -- Pahang bersedia dan bersemangat menjadi tuan

rumah terbaik bagi Pesta Bola Merdeka 2013 yang akan berlangsung di negeri itu

pada 5 hingga 15 Sept depan.

Timbalan Presiden Persatuan Bola Sepak Negeri Pahang (PBNP) Datuk Seri

Muhammad Safian Ismail berkata pelbagai persiapan perlu dilakukan bagi

menghadapi pertandingan yang dihidupkan semula selepas kali terakhir, dianjurkan

pada 2008 itu.

"Banyak persiapan perlu dibuat oleh Pahang kerana harapan Tengku Mahkota

Pahang Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah selaku Timbalan Presiden Persatuan Bola

Sepak Malaysia (FAM) mahu Pahang menjadi tuan rumah terbaik," katanya kepada

pemberita selepas mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Agong Tahunan PBNP ke-57 di sini

semalam.

Beliau berkata sehubungan itu seluruh anggota jawatankuasa PBNP akan

digerakkan bagi memastikan persiapan semua aspek dapat disempurnakan terutamanya

dari segi penyediaan stadium dan kebajikan pemain.

Selain itu, katanya jabatan dan agensi kerajaan berkaitan juga turut sama

membantu dalam membuat persiapan tersebut.

"Saya juga dimaklumkan bahawa FAM sudah membuat persiapan sewajarnya bagi

memastikan kemenangan milik Malaysia, namun pokok pangkalnya Pahang yang

mewakili negara sebagai tuan rumah kali ini perlu menjadi tuan rumah terbaik,"

katanya.

Muhammad Safian berkata peruntukan untuk persediaan sepanjang kejohanan itu

akan dikeluarkan oleh FAM namun peruntukan daripada pihak Kerajaan Negeri

Pahang amat diharapkan bagi merealisasikan hasrat penganjuran terbaik itu.

Pada 2008, iaitu tahun terakhir Pesta Bola Merdeka dianjurkan, skuad Bawah

23 Vietnam muncul juara selepas menewaskan skuad negara yang ketika itu

dibimbing B. Sathianathan melalui sepakan penalti 6-5 apabila kedua-dua pasukan

terikat tanpa jaringan.

Skuad Harimau Muda A akan membawa cabaran Malaysia dalam saingan Pesta Bola

Merdeka 2013.

Terdahulu, Tengku Muda Pahang Tengku Abdul Rahman Sultan Ahmad Shah dan

Muhammad Safian mengekalkan jawatan masing-masing sebagai Presiden dan Timbalan

Presiden PBNP apabila anggota jawatankuasa (AJK) sebulat suara bersetuju agar

kedua-dua jawatan itu tidak dipertandingkan dalam pemilihan, kali ini.

Sulaiman, yang merupakan penyandang jawatan tersebut.

Lima AJK baharu turut dilantik dan lima AJK lama dikekalkan. AJK lama ialah

Rosli Nordin, Abd Razab Wahab, Datuk Abdul Rahman Daud, S.Krishnan dan Roslan

Abdullah.

AJK baharu, Datuk Mustafa Mohd Yasin, Wan Solihi Wan Hassan, Raja Mustafa

Shah Raja Jalil, Husziabidi Husin dan Adzlan Zakaria.

jawatankuasa itu dapat membawa PBNP ke arah lebih cemerlang berbanding

tahun-tahun sebelumnya.

    MH370 steward's daughter 'blessed' with Liverpool kit

    The daughter of the chief steward aboard the missing Malaysian jet has thanked Liverpool fans for giving her a signed jersey in honour of her football-mad father, in a story that has captured the nation's hearts. Maira Elizabeth Nari -- who has become a social media phenomenon in Malaysia for her poignant posts refusing to give up hope of finding her father alive -- said three Malaysian Liverpool fans "went through a few obstacles" to get the shirt signed by the club's players and manager after a recent game at Anfield. "Feeling so blessed! I've no clue how to thank all of you," the 17-year-old wrote as she posted a picture of the shirt over the weekend, which has been shared on Twitter nearly 3,500 times. The teenager said she would frame the red jersey, which bears the name of her father Andrew Nari, who was working as chief steward on flight MH370 when it vanished on March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

    I'd have more recognition if I wasn't African, says Toure

    Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, one of six nominees for the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) player of the year award, says he would have more global recognition if he was not from Africa. The talismanic Ivory Coast international believes he and Africans like compatriot Didier Drogba (Galatasaray) and Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o (Chelsea) would be more appreciated around the world but for their heritage. City team mate Samir Nasri suggested last month that it would be a different story for Toure if he had been born in Europe or South America. "To be honest proper recognition has only come from the fans.

  • Tennis-Ruthless Wawrinka downs Ferrer to reach Monte Carlo final Reuters

    Third seed Stanislas Wawrinka produced a ruthless display to beat Spain's David Ferrer 6-1 7-6 (3) on Saturday to reach the Monte Carlo Masters final. Australian Open champion Wawrinka, who next faces fellow Swiss Roger Federer or Serb Novak Djokovic, raced through the first set and kept his composure in the second when his opponent raised his level. Sixth seed Ferrer, who knocked out eight-times French Open champion and world number one Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals on Friday, was on the back foot throughout. I played very well in spite of the wind," Wawrinka told Canal Plus TV.
