UEFA Opens Investigation Into Zlatan Ibrahimovic Over Alleged Links To Gambling Company

UEFA has launched an investigation into allegations that football star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a financial interest in a betting company.

In sports, it is a very big crime for sportsmen, coaches or managers to have betting companies or be involved in betting and if found guilty such a person could be banned from the sport or given a hefty fine.

Ibrahimovic, 39, signed a new deal with AC Milan last week. However, UEFA has appointed an inspector to look into the allegations that he's financially involved with a gambling company.

In a statement on its website, UEFA said: 

“In accordance with Article 31(4) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, a UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector has today been appointed to conduct a disciplinary investigation regarding a potential violation of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations by Mr. Zlatan Ibrahimovic for having an alleged financial interest in a betting company.

“Further information regarding this matter will be made available in due course.”


The probe comes following a report in Ibrahimovic’s native Sweden that said he could be hit with a ban on account of reports earlier in April alleging Ibrahimovic’s company Unknown AB owns shares in Bethard gambling company.
