Van Hattum happy the week is over

8:31 am on 2 June 2011

The chairman of New Zealand Football Frank van Hattum is relieved a rather torrid week for Fifa is now over and that the game can move forward.

This morning the head of football's world governing body Sepp Blatter was re-elected unopposed for a fourth term as FIFA president shrugging off the scandals that have hit the sport to secure another four years in charge.

Before the vote, Blatter said he would propose changes to the way World Cup hosts are elected and promised that FIFA would be tougher on wrong-doers saying it must strengthen its ethics committee and make it more professional.

Van Hattum says while it has been a difficult week, he feels the body has come out the other end stronger....
