Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been fined €50,000 by UEFA due to his involvement with gaming operator Bethard.
Ibrahimovic was charged with breaching Article 12(2)(b) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations due to his stake in the Malta-licensed Bethard. He could have been banned from the sport for three years, but managed to avoid that (albeit with a stiff financial penalty). In addition, Ibrahimovic must divest himself of his interest in Bethard moving forward.
The AC Milan striker became a Bethard partner in 2018 and was reported by the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet earlier in the year. He currently holds a 10% stake in the business, although that likely won't be for much longer.
Ibrahimovic is signed with Milan until the end of next year.
