Those who did not stay behind and put up a series of sports over the weekend have already won excellent reviews, is rival Amazon Prime, who raised "El Presidante" (the president) - which is based on the real events surrounding the FIFA corruption affair five years ago. Indictments have been filed against nine FIFA officials for bribes, bias for hosting World Cup soccer tournaments, fraudulent broadcasting, fraud, extortion and money laundering in the last two decades, valued at a total value of $ 150 million.
At the same time, an investigation has also been launched against FIFA President Saf Blatter and UEFA President Michel Platini, who have been suspended for eight years. The person in charge of the series is the production company of Narcos, so the style of the series is clear and is constructed as a crime series no less than a football series.
