EA Sports Respond To Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Comment About Using His Likeness In FIFA 21

EA Sports Respond To Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Comment About Using His Likeness In FIFA 21

EA SPORTS have responded to a question from AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic about them using his name and likeness in the FIFA franchise.

On Monday night Ibra was the latest famous footballer to take to social media to complain about FIFA 21. Unlike everyone else he wasn't complaining about his rating, but rather that he was on the game at all.

Zlatan tweeted his displeasure, calling out FIFpro for their role in his likeness being on the game, claiming he had no agreement and saying he'd be investigating the issue.

EA SPORTS have now responded to the former Manchester United striker. In a statement to SPORTbible, an EA SPORTS spokesperson said, "EA SPORTS FIFA is the world's leading football video game, and to create an authentic experience year after year we work with numerous leagues, teams and individual talent to secure the rights of player likeness to include in our game.

"One of those is a long-standing relationship with the global representative of professional football players, FIFPro, who partner with a number of licensors to negotiate deals that benefit the players and their unions."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Isn't Happy With EA Sports Using His Likeness

published at2 months ago

It seems that Ibra isn't the only player who is interested in finding out where they stand when it comes to FIFA either.

Both Gareth Bale and Zlatan's agent, Mino Raiola, who also represents many other high profile players, also took to Twitter to discuss the issue.

Bale is a former cover star for FIFA 14, where he was alongside Lionel Messi, and he isn't the only one joining Zlatan's 'crusade.'

According to The Athletic there's 'thousands' of players who have issue with their likeness being used in the game, others who are similarly high profile to the Swede and Welshman.
