CONMEBOL to back Blatter

South America's confederation (CONMEBOL) will back Sepp Blatter in the upcoming FIFA Presidential campaign against rival Mohamed Bin Hammam.

Blatter's recent criticism of the organisation of World Cup 2014 to be held in Brazil saw suggestions that he would not be a popular choice in South America, but Argentina football chief Julio Grondona told the CONMEBOL executive board he was in no doubt as to who he would be voting for next month.

"South America is unanimously and resoundingly committed to supporting the candidacy of Joseph Blatter for another period as president of FIFA, there's no doubt in this regard," he told Reuters. "That's how we started in 1998 and that's how we want to continue for the good of world football."

Blatter, who was first elected to the position in 1998, said he was counting on support from CONMEBOL.

"It was CONMEBOL that already in January or February 1998 made a declaration that the 10 countries of CONMEBOL were fully behind Sepp Blatter,'' he said. "Therefore, I'm fully confident that they are still in the same mood. I don't know why they shouldn't be."
