The UEFA confirmed this Monday the opening of a disciplinary procedure to the Swedish player of Milan Zlatan Ibrahimovic before the possible violation of its regulations due to its alleged financial interest at a betting company.

In compliance with article 31 (4) of its Disciplinary Regulations, UEFA has designated a inspector who will conduct the investigation of the case, on which it will provide more information in due course, as announced

Swedish media recently published that Ibrahimovic, through a company owned by him, is shareholder of a sports betting company based in Malta, a situation that contravenes FIFA and UEFA regulations, which provide for financial penalties and suspension of up to three years.

The Swedish striker, who will turn 40 next October, has just renewed his contract with Milan until June 30, 2022, as reported by the Italian club on the 22nd.
