Wilson Raj Perumal has been labeled the world's most prolific match-fixer in football's recent history. Born a village boy in rural Singapore in the mid-60's, Wilson climbed the heights of international match-fixing across five continents all the way to the World Cup, becoming FIFA's most wanted man.
Like a "guppy in the sea", Wilson started off a small gambler, mixing with the local Singapore bookies, and witnessed the rise and fall of the old-school Asian "big fish" of match-fixing until he found himself competing against them in a world with no set rules, where turncoats are the norm and quick money the only drive.
Perumal was arrested in Finland in February 2011 and decided to collaborate with authorities opening football's Pandora's box. In his book, Wilson reveals an unprecedented account of how the international match-fixing underworld has influenced the outcomes of matches at every level of football that we may well have watched unsuspectingly.
Kelong Kings is the ultimate tale about gambling, soccer and match-fixing, told directly by the man who made it all happen. But be advised, after you read this book, you will never be able to watch a soccer match in the same way again.
