Zlatan Ibrahimovic could face a three-year ban - and perhaps an early end to his football career - because of his partnership with a Malta-based betting company, according to reports coming out of his native Sweden.
The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet state that through his company Unknown AB, Sweden and AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic owns 10 per cent of the shares of Bethard, a gambling site with offices registered in Malta.
The report also details that the Swedish Football Association have been aware of the problem for three years and it is the reason the talismanic forward wasn't called up for the 2018 World Cup, though he did retire from international football in 2016 until returning last month.
