Rafael Buschmann und Michael Wulzinger – Football Leaks

Revelations about the secret business of football

The whistleblower “John” has given the SPIEGEL 1.9 terabytes of secret data: Around 18.6 million documents on negotiations, contracts and agreements, which make it clear that morality and law often seem to have little validity for the players in professional football – neither for clubs, players, managers nor for the powerful player advisors who act in the background.

In “Football Leaks”, Rafael Buschmann and Michael Wulzinger describe the most important revelations that they have gathered from the huge mountain of data in months of research. At the same time, their book is the gripping story of a whistleblower who wants to free football from Mafia influences – and who has now become the hunted himself.
