Zlatan Ibrahimovic Could Be In Big Trouble With The FA
March 21, 2018
Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t one to shy away from the headlines for too long, being one of the most widely recognised players on the planet.
Sweden’s retired all-time international goalscorer was a huge signing for Manchester United and enjoyed a relatively successful maiden campaign at Old Trafford.
But this term he has been far from the action, with a host of injury setbacks seeing him forced to the sidelines longer than fans wanted to see.
Despite having not featured for Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils since last year, Ibrahimovic has now found himself in a potential spot of trouble with the FA.
The now 36-year-old has only played five Premier League games for the Manchester club so far this season, and hasn’t been seen since a Boxing Day draw with Burnley.
Off the pitch, the Swede has recently become an ambassador for sports betting site BetHard, and emerging reports suggest this could land him in trouble with the FA.
The governing body are now investigating whether his new role with the organisation is in breach of their laws when it comes to gambling in football.
As well as obviously being banned from betting, players are also not allowed to promote or advertise this either. Joey Barton was previously suspended due to betting on matches, although the sport is rife with gambling advertisements anyway.
With Ibrahimovic’s current contract set to expire in June, his last contribution on English soil could turn out to be a ban for his latest exploits.
