Hansson breaks silence

The Swede hopes he can survive the backlash from the ‘Henry handball’ and declares that ‘life must go on’.

“I cannot comment on the game itself but life must go on and I hope I will survive this too,” he told Swedish radio station Blekinge.

“Really? Has it been in the evening papers? Well, then it has to be true, hasn’t it?” he added when being told he was still in line to be named among Fifa’s list of referees for the World Cup in South Africa.
