The Swedish press have released big news. Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be banned for an issue to do with betting. The punishment could be a fine or a ban and that could be the end of his career.
Controversy has hit Ibra lately. He has been caught breaking COVID-19 rules, he was suspended for his behaviour in Milan's game with Parma and he is now in the headlines again.
This time it is much more serious. 'Aftonbladet' bhas published that he could be in serious trouble. Ibra still owns a bookies and that would violate FIFA's ethics code.
The funny thing is that Zlatan would not have been affected had he not been called up by Sweden for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. As that is a FIFA competition, he has violated their code.
The punishment could be a fine or, even worse, a suspension. As he is 39, any suspension would practically end his professional career.
