Product description

Review

"This book has a cumulative power, piling betrayal on betrayal, until they even include one of Conn’s childhood idols from the 1974 World Cup, the German player Franz Beckenbauer" (Andy Beckett Guardian)

"We have known for so long that Fifa, world’s football’s governing body, is rank with institutionalised corruption… But then if we are to hand a rifle to anyone to shoot fish in a barrel, there could be no choice than David Conn, the dogged investigate reporter… The figures he uncovers in this book are breathtaking" (Jim White Mail on Sunday)

"Excellent" (David Walsh Sunday Times)

"Even in age inured to corruption, the reign of Sepp Blatter over football’s global ruling body, Fifa, was jaw-droppingly spectacular… How did he do it? David Conn’s patient unravelling of Fifa’s tangled web provides the answer, and it makes for ugly but revealing reading… Conn, a sport journalist on the Guardian, negotiates the murky world of big money with confidence and dogged calm in this tale of the beautiful game gone bad" (Nigel Jones Observer)

"A very fine piece of reportage, probing to the organisation's dark and festering heart while also taking care to accentuate the good FIFA has done in the world" (Gavin Cooney BALLS.ie)
