The Author Rob Murphy

TOMAH, WISCONSIN, USA, November 23, 2022 / — A story of corruption in an attempt to secure the right to stage the 2018 soccer World Cup, Rob Murphy’s Rotten to the Core demonstrates the extreme lengths that countries will take to secure the right to stage prestigious sporting events like the World Cup and the Olympics. And how easy it is for people to be swayed by the offer of great riches and lose their moral compass.

When ask about his inspiration in writing the book, Murphy answers, “The decision by former US Attorney-General Loretta Lynch to seek prosecutions against several leading FIFA officials including their Secretary-General, convinced me that foul play may indeed have taken place to secure the right to stage the World Cup and that allegations of corruption were more than just sour grapes on the part of unsuccessful bidders.”
