Overview

Football and Gangsters: How Organised Crime Controls the Beautiful Game by Graham Johnson

No one might be willing to admit it, but criminal organizations have maneuvred themselves into a position of power in soccer. Drug-dealers launder money by buying clubs, hooligan gangs have muscled their way into big-time crime and the boardroom, and the influence of Asian betting rings continues to grow. Through a series of dangerous undercover investigations, along with interviews with players, club officials, police, and the underworld figures responsible, the sensational evidence is laid bare in Football and Gangsters.
