The UEFA Appeal Chairman took the decision to fine Zlatan Ibrahimovic € 50,000 for violating Article 12 (2) (b) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, that's, for having a financial interest in a betting company.
UEFA forces Ibrahimovic to end the player's association with the corresponding betting company, something that the Swedish footballer himself announced.
Finally, the chairman of the UEFA Appellate Body decided to warn and fine AC Milan 25,000 euros for violating UEFA Article 12 (2) (b) for its player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has a financial interest in said company betting.
Ibrahimovic has gotten rid of his participation in a sports betting house, which had caused the opening of a UEFA disciplinary procedure for violating the regulations. The US firm Esports Entertaiment Group has acquired the Swedish company Bethard, of which Ibra was a shareholder, for 16 million euros through a company owned by it, the Direkt news agency reported on Tuesday.
UEFA announced a month ago the opening of a file on the player to find out if he had breached article 31 (4) of its Disciplinary Regulations, which provides for financial sanctions and suspension of up to three years.
