''Fifa President Sepp Blatter says he is "satisfied" with an investigation into corruption which resulted in suspensions for six top officials.
But he admitted that not all members of the organisation's Executive Committee were happy with the outcome.
"These decisions may not have found the total support of all the members of the Executive Committee," Blatter said.
"But the Executive Committee ... as a government of Fifa, of course follows and abides by the decisions."
Nigerian Amos Adamu and Tahiti's Reynald Temarii were banned for three years and one year respectively after claims in a British newspaper that they asked for money in return for voting on World Cup hosting rights.
The pair were both members of the Executive Committee and have now lost their right to vote on which countries should host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
Four former executive members - Slim Aloulou of Tunisia, Mali's Amadu Diakite, Ahongalu Fusimalohi of Tonga and Botswana's Ismael Bhamjee - were also sanctioned.
Blatter said all six people involved had the right of appeal within Fifa, then to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and ultimately to the Swiss courts.
He said the bans imposed by the ethics committee gave Fifa a chance to "clean up" but that the investigation methods were not fair.
"I'm not pleased about that because this is not very fair but now we have a result, it gives us an opportunity to clean a little bit whatever has to be cleaned.
"But I cannot say that it is very fair when you open traps to entrap people. But if the objective is to have a clean sheet in football then I can understand it."
Thats that then...'satisfied'. All the effort put in by the bid organisers, Quinn and the like from our club and more than 4 years work will be overshadowed by one newspaper sting. Like it or not, football is corrupt in many parts of the world, reflecting the upper eschelons of commerce/sport in the countries that play it. And how many will now vote for England? What did News International expect to achieve here?
