Johansson says Blatter will easily win fourth term

Former UEFA president Lennart Johansson believes his former rival Sepp Blatter will easily be re-elected as president of soccer's world governing body.
Blatter, the incumbent FIFA President, is running for his fourth term but is facing the challenge of Qatar's Mohamed bin Hammam in the June election.
Johansson told The Associated Press that bin Hammam "hasn't been long in business" and that he believes Blatter is likely to be elected with "100 percent of the votes."
Blatter beat Johansson to the FIFA presidency in 1998. Johansson's UEFA reign ended when Michel Platini succeeded him in 2007.
