FOUL! The Secret World of FIFA: Bribes, Vote Rigging and Ticket Scandals
FOUL! is the result of seven year's research into the dark depths of the men controlling the world's favourite game. It charts the degeneration of FIFA under the leadership of Joao Havelange and Sepp Blatter.
It reveals the vote-rigging that put Blatter in power and the cronyism and ticket rackets that keep him there. And in the background ... the relentless flow of kickbacks to selected officials in return for billion-dollar contracts.
In a sensational interview for the new and updated paperback edition an executive involved in paying the bribes reveals how the money was laundered, at regular intervals, through off-shore bank accounts.
Another chapter digs deeper into FIFA vice-president Jack Warner’s vast World Cup ticket racket. And there’s new disclosures about the disastrous decision by FIFA to lie to MasterCard and VISA, forge a signature on a backdated contract and crudely edit a tape of a FIFA committee meeting, hoping to fool a New York judge.
That’s everyday life at Sepp Blatter’s FIFA and there’s more in FOUL!
