The once cocky banter of two men claiming to know so much about the dark world of football match fixing world is gone. In its place, uncertainty. On their minds, fear.
“Was my name revealed in the book?” one of them asked me yesterday.
The other man, whom I had met two weeks ago, tried to reassure himself: “Surely he wouldn’t dare talk about such secrets. Would he?”
Their nightmares have now come true.
In a tell-all book launched by his co-authors online yesterday, convicted match fixer Wilson Raj Perumal, 48, stripped away whatever was left of a code of silence upheld by those in the kelong industry.
His book, Kelong Kings, exposes the misdeeds of corrupt footballers, bookies and fellow match fixers.
