go down well "It all left me feeling that I would never get a chance in any capacity while Arsene was there Much as I respected him for his long and successful tenure my occasional willingness to pass comment on him and the team probably counted against me" Adams wrote in the book Adams who was named as the new Granada coach in April has bared his soul on panic attacks and depression in a new book

allegations that payment of Rs 425 crore facilitation fees by MSM Singapore to WSG Mauritius was made in an unauthorised manner On Tuesday ED’s lawyer Hiten Venegoankar said that since Lalit Modi was not available in India hence an NBW should be issued Modi had not complied with the summonses issued to him since 2009 he had claimed The judge had asked if Lalit Modi was an accused before the court as ED had not filed a charge sheet against him For issuance of NBW the person should be an accused before the court judge Bhavake had said The ED lawyer said the case was at the stage of pre-investigation and the Supreme Court had said in a previous ruling that NBW can be issued during investigation Last month the court had issued letters rogatory (LR) to Singapore and Mauritius
