Fifa security chief aims to 'protect football' from corruption

Officials in the world of football have said all countries and organisations must do more to tackle corruption.

The acting head of the Asian Football Confederation, Zhang Jilong, told a meeting in Malaysia about match-fixing that it had become "a pandemic" which no organisation could fight alone.

Fifa's security chief Ralf Mutschke told the BBC's Jonah Fisher he hoped corruption would not tarnish the sport's popularity.

''Our objective is to protect football, and we have to make it clear to all our members that we alone cannot achieve this goal,'' he added.
