Love football? Please read this!,
This review is from: Foul!: The Secret World of FIFA: Bribes, Vote Rigging and Ticket Scandals (Paperback)
If you love football and have an interest in the running of the game then you must read this book. It will truly open your eyes to a vast array of underhanded dealings going on at the very highest level with the very people who control the peoples sport.
After reading this book you realise that those people at the top have got there not through being the best people for the job and the people who care most about the sport. On the contrary these organisations such as FIFA and UEFA display the highest form of nepotism possible. People are kept in power through a friends and old boys union of power which is almost inbreakable. While the grass roots of the beautiful game struggle for funds the FIFA heads drive around in chauffer driven cars and charge their every move to the FIFA account funded by....yes you the grassroots football player.
Its heartbreaking discovering the level of curruption that exists in these organisations and I'd recommend as many people as possible read this book so more publicity is brought to this fact and something can be done about it.
Since this book was published one of the biggest and worst characters unveiled in this book who is demonstrated in these pages to be breaking several FIFA rules in his every action has simply been promoted and now stands as FIFA Vice president. Something needs to be done.
