Not an easy moment for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Expelled a Parma in the Rossoneri’s victory, at the restaurant in the red zone with the Lombardy region who plans to remove him as a pro-vaccine testimonial and now a news coming from the Sweden and that casts shadows on his football future. As he writes Aftonbladet, in fact, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, through its joint stock company Unknown AB, owns 10% of Bethard.com, a sports betting brand. Thus violating the Fifa-Uefa code of ethics, which prohibits players participating in their competitions from having financial interests in companies of this type. CONFIRMATION – Erik Sharp, managing director of Bethard, confirmed a Sportbladet as written above, i.e. that Ibrahimovic still owns shares of Gameday Group PLC, sole shareholder of Bethard. The company managed by the 11 of Milan is therefore the fourth largest owner of Bethard, which in 2019 made a profit, after taxes, of around 30 million euros.
WHAT IT RISKS – All this can cost a disqualification to Ibrahimovic, as it is not compatible with the regulation of Uefa e Fifa. Rules that apply to all competitions, including the World Cup qualifiers, in which Ibra took the field with Sweden, including theEuropa League, played with Milan. The regulation says that those who violate it can face penalties: from a fine of around € 100,000 to the suspension of all football-related activities for a maximum of three years. The general secretary of Sweden, Hakan Sjostrand, says his a Sportbladet: “We haven’t talked about it with Zlatan. I don’t speculate on possible sanctions, but I would like some more clarity in the FIFA regulations because there is ambiguity in how it should be interpreted.”
