The daughter of embattled Fifa president Sepp Blatter has claimed her father is a victim of a conspiracy from "behind the scenes".
Blatter - who won a fifth term on Friday - has been under intense pressure to step down since senior Fifa officials were arrested on a string of corruption charges last week.
But the 79-year-old's daughter Corinne Blatter told the BBC that her father should not have to resign as he was not the "person who is taking money".
Asked whether she believed there was a conspiracy against Blatter, she replied: "I wouldn't say from the Americans and the British, but certainly people working behind the scenes, yes absolutely."
Ms Blatter said the dramatic events over the past week had been an attempt to "discredit" her father so that "he would resign", but she insisted that "no one will talk about it anymore" in a matter of weeks.
Chief Executive of the Irish Football Association John Delaney has admitted Fifa paid the organisation to avoid a legal case.
FIFA has said that Julio Grondona, who died last year, authorised a $10m payment that is at the heart of the bribery scandal.
Prince William outlined a "huge disconnect between the sense of fair play" and "allegations of corruption" within Fifa.
