SALT LAKE CITY -- FIFA President, Sepp Blatter resigned his post Tuesday in response to the bribery and corruption scandals taking place under his watch.

Real Salt Lake was back practicing Tuesday morning and responded to the shakeup of leadership surrounding international soccer.

"I didn't like him, the fact that he didn't let the world cup be in England and America, so I'm glad that he's gone,” said midfielder Luke Mulholland.

RSL head coach Jeff Cassar said there’s always going to be those kind of people and it’s good that they are removed.

Cassar added it’s important they are replaced with individuals of integrity.

RSL is preparing for Sunday's home match against Colorado.
