Blatter - Racism row now 'closed'


Fifa president Sepp Blatter said on Wednesday he had apologised enough for his recent comments on racism in football.

Speaking at a news conference in Kuala Lumpur, the 75 year old told journalists he considered the matter ‘closed’ and added he was hurt by the accusations made against him.

Blatter recently claimed that racial incidents between players on the field could be settled by a handshake.

The head of soccer’s world governing body, who was re-elected to a four-year term in June, ruled out leaving his post.
