Sepp Blatter is preparing to perform a U-turn by calling for the release of court documents which may reveal FIFA delegates took bribes.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter is preparing to perform a U-turn by calling for the release of court documents which could reveal that senior officials at the world governing body have taken bribes, according to BBC Sport.

So far FIFA has continued to block attempts by a number of journalists to have the documents released.

However, Blatter is now expected to push for the publication of the papers during a two-day meeting of the committee in Zurich which begins on Thursday.

If Blatter meets strong opposition from other FIFA board members he may have to wait until next May's congress in Budapest to try to force the changes through.
