Zlatan Ibrahimovic attacks EA Sports for using his image

On Monday, Zlatan Ibrahimovic used his Twitter account to attack EA Sports for using his image without his consent. According to the 39-year-old, the producers are profiting from his image in the new FIFA 21 video game and it is ‘Time to investigate.’

Who gave FIFA EA Sport permission to use my name and face FifPro? I’m not aware of being a member of Fifpro and if I am I was put there without any real knowledge through some weird maneuver. And for sure I never allowed FIFA or Fifpro to make money using me,” Ibra wrote on Twitter.

Somebody is making profit on my name and face without any agreement all these years. Time to investigate.”

The Swedish striker scored a brace against Napoli on Sunday, but picked up a hamstring injury and AC Milan announced on Monday that he will be out at least three weeks. Ibra will miss the Europa League this week and several Serie A games. Zlatan has scored 11 goals in all competitions this year in just 10 appearances.

Other players also complaining

Ibrahimovic is not the only player that is complaining about EA Sports profiting from his image. Romelu Lukaku complained about his rating on FIFA 20 and Sami Khedira asked the company to change his haircut in the video game.
