The billionaires club: the unstoppable rise of football's super-rich owners

The billionaires club: the unstoppable rise of football's super-rich owners

Montague, James, author

Once upon a time football was run by modest local businessmen. Today it is the plaything of billionaire oligarchs, staggeringly wealthy from oil and gas, from royalty, or from murkier sources. But who are these new masters of the universe? Where did all their money come from? And what do they want with our beautiful game? James Montague delves deeper than anyone else has dared, to tell this story. It is part history of club ownership, part in-depth investigation into the money and influence that connects the super-rich around the globe, and part travel book as he crosses national boundaries in an attempt to reveal the real force behind modern-day football
