Briefs-Soccer-Lokomotiv Sofia coach Grozdanov quits

LONDON, April 10 (Reuters) - Sports news in brief from around the world:

Soccer - Stefan Grozdanov resigned as coach of Lokomotiv Sofia on Thursday, a day after their 2-1 home defeat by Litex Lovech in the Bulgarian premier league.

The 62-year-old took over at Lokomotiv in October 2004 when they were bottom of the league and steered them to UEFA Cup berths in the next two seasons.

“I’m leaving because I couldn’t convince the club bosses how Lokomotiv should develop in the future,” Grozdanov, who departs with the club in third place 16 points behind leaders CSKA Sofia, told reporters.

Soccer-Espanyol’s Cameroon goalkeeper Carlos Kameni is being courted by a number of clubs in England and Spain, the player’s representative Patrick Mboma said.

“He’s considering a change and there are four teams interested: Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United,” Mboma was quoted as saying in Spanish media.

Soccer - AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani said the club may face competition from city rivals Inter for Barcelona forward Ronaldinho.

“It is a derby on the transfer market,” he said. “(Inter director Marco) Branca informs me of every telephone call that happens. I believe this operation (to sign Ronaldinho) will be done,” Galliani told reporters before repeating that the door was open for Chelsea’s Andriy Shevchenko to return to Milan.
