During the seventeen years of his career, Rodrigo Mattos interviewed Joseph Blatter many times in press conferences and exclusives. In this book, the author reveals the facts that have been uncovered from the time of the FIFA director’s imprisonment in Switzerland to the election of the new president and how the FIFA fortress came crashing down. It also paints a picture of how the Brazilian directors ruled the country´s soccer for twenty-five years and how their shady dealings off camera affected the development of sports in Brazil.
