Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a Swedish patriot
Zlatan Ibrahimovic threatens retirement due to participation in betting company
Milan / Munich - Striker superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic threatens huge trouble.
In his Swedish homeland, the newspaper "Aftonbladet" reports that the 39-year-old is the face of a betting company. Ibrahimovic is said to hold ten percent of the Swedish betting company "Bethard", which has its offices in Malta, through his company "Unknown AB".
Bethard CEO Erik Sharp and the Maltese office for company registration confirm to the newspaper that the striker is currently still a partner in the betting company.
Ibrahimovic threatens the end of his career
However, the regulations of FIFA and UEFA prohibit active football professionals from having financial stakes in betting providers. Ibrahimovic faces a six-figure fine - and a ban of up to three years for all football activities.
This would probably mean the end of his career for the 39-year-old Swede.
Spicy: The company offers bets on Ibrahimovic's Serie A games, and there was also a bet for the game on his national team comeback against Georgia. Sweden's football association is said to have known about the problem for three years and therefore did not nominate Ibrahimovic for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
At the time, Sweden’s association boss Hakan Sjöstrand said: "Under FIFA rules, no player can be directly involved in a betting company, nor can he have shares in such a company. I just stick to the facts and the rules that apply to all nations and players apply who want to take part in the World Cup. "
Ibrahimovic is silent
Now he told the newspaper: "I don't want to speculate about possible penalties today. But I will of course push for a clarification of the FIFA rules, as they are, to be honest, very vague."
Ibrahimovic's company "Unknown AB" is the fourth largest shareholder in the betting company, which in 2019 had a profit of almost 30 million euros after taxes.
Neither Ibrahimovic, his entourage, nor UEFA nor FIFA have so far commented on these allegations.
