World Cup corruption report to be released: Sepp Blatter

Marrakech: FIFA president Sepp Blatter said Friday a report into alleged corruption surrounding the bids for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups would be released in "an appropriate form".

The report was drawn up by top US lawyer Michael Garcia who resigned on Wednesday in protest at the handling of the inquiry by FIFA`s leadership.

The report will only be released once proceedings against individuals named in the report are finished, Blatter said in a statement after FIFA`s executive committee voted unanimously to release the document.
