    (Reuters) - David Moyes lost his job as Manchester United manager because he ignored advice and failed to appreciate the scale of the job, said Rene Meulensteen, a former coach at the Premier League club. Moyes was sacked on Tuesday after a disastrous 10-month spell in charge, with United now certain to finish outside the Premier League's top four for the first time. Midfielder and assistant coach Ryan Giggs placed in temporary control for the final four league matches of the season while …

KUALA LUMPUR, 25 Feb (Bernama) -- Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad menegaskan beliau

sama sekali tidak terlibat dalam membuat keputusan berhubung dakwaan pemberian

kontrak Petronas kepada anaknya.

Malah, bekas Perdana Menteri itu berkata beliau cuma diberitahu oleh

Presiden Petronas selepas kontrak itu diberikan dan beliau sanggup bersumpah di

dalam masjid dengan menjunjung Al-Quran berhubung perkara itu.

"(Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim menuduh saya, sebagai

penasihat Petronas telah terlibat dalam pemberian kontrak Petronas kepada anak

saya.

"Bagi Anwar, inilah yang biasa dilakukan olehnya jika ia berkuasa. Semasa

menjadi Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan memang pun banyak kontrak

diberi olehnya kepada penyokong politiknya dan keluarganya.

"Kementerian telah mempamerkan semasa mesyuarat Agung Umno senarai orang

yang mendapat kontrak semasa ia berkuasa. Terdapat dalam senarai nama

penyokongnya dan keluarganya. Tidak ada satu pun dari anak saya yang

tersenarai," katanya dalam entri terbaharu blognya, www.chedet.cc.

MAHATHIR-FITNAH 2 KUALA LUMPUR

Dr Mahathir berkata walaupun digelar sebagai penasihat Petronas, beliau

tidak memberi apa-apa nasihat kepada syarikat itu.

"Petronas diletak di bawah Perdana Menteri dan Perdana Menteri lah yang

memberi arahan kepada Petronas. Semasa saya jadi Perdana Menteri pun saya tidak

memberi apa-apa bantuan kepada anak-anak saya," katanya.

Katanya tiada seorang pun anaknya mendapat tempat dalam kerajaan atau dalam

parti ketika beliau sebagai Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan.

Beliau menjelaskan beberapa kali nama mereka dicalonkan tetapi tidak

membenarkannya sehingga beliau bersara, begitu juga tiada kontrak kerajaan yang

mereka perolehi.

"Jika mereka berjaya sama ada dalam perniagaan atau politik, ini adalah atas

usaha mereka sendiri. Dan ini semua berlaku selepas saya letak jawatan Perdana

Menteri," katanya.

MAHATHIR-FITNAH 3 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

Dr Mahathir berkata Petronas tidak memberi peluang kepada anaknya sahaja

ketika beliau menjadi penasihatnya dan orang lain juga mendapat peluang jika

mereka ada kemampuan.

Sebaliknya Anwar, katanya apabila menubuh partinya melantik isterinya

sebagai Presiden, sebagai calon di Permatang Pauh dan kemudian menyuruh

isterinya melepaskan kawasan untuk ditandinginya.

"Tidak ada bukti adanya pertandingan untuk jawatan penasihat parti yang

disandang olehnya. Dia juga memilih anaknya untuk menjadi calon dalam pilihan

raya.

"Sekarang isterinya jadi presiden parti dan anaknya jadi naib presiden

parti. Kawannya juga jadi timbalan. Parti Keadilan adalah milik Anwar Ibrahim,"

katanya.

"Jika anak dan isteri Anwar boleh menjadi politikus, apakah anak saya tak

boleh berniaga sendiri tanpa difitnah oleh Anwar?

"Kenapa begitu takut bersumpah jika jenayah liwat tidak dilakukan. Berani

kerana benar, takut kerana salah – demikian pepatah Melayu," katanya.

    (Reuters) - Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is optimistic of returning from injury for the key clash against former team mates and title rivals Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday in a boost for the Premier League leaders. "Hopefully this weekend I'll be back," the league's second top scorer, with 20 goals to team mate Luis Suarez's 30, told children in a question and answer session at a sponsor event for the club. "I'm not too sure if he'll play me or not," he added when asked whether manager Brendan Rodgers was likely to select him. "We'll have to see." Liverpool, chasing their first league title since 1990, have won their last 11 matches and are five points clear of second placed Chelsea with four games remaining.

Even his deputy Carlos Alberto Parreira is still in the dark, he said.

    The last visible evidence of David Moyes' miserable reign at Manchester United was removed on Thursday as the infamous 'The Chosen One' banner was taken down from the Stretford End at Old Trafford. Moyes was sacked on Tuesday after just 10 months in charge of United and the much-maligned Scot is quickly being erased from the club's history. After being hand-picked by his predecessor Alex Ferguson to take over at United, Moyes was hailed by supporters as the chosen one, a reference to Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's self-styled nickname 'the Special One'.
