Zlatan Ibrahimovic Isn't Happy With EA Sports Using His Likeness
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the latest high profile player to tweet about FIFA 21 and, instead of complaining about his rating on the game, the AC Milan forward isn't happy about being in the game at all.
Ibra is currently having an incredible renaissance in his career, scoring 22 goals in 30 appearances for Milan since returning from the MLS at the beginning of the year.
This season he's scored an incredible 10 goals in just six games in Serie A and taken the Rossoneri to top of the table in Italy.
However despite all that the big Swede has found something to complain about, taking to social media to ask why he's on FIFA 21.
The 39-year-old asked if player's union FIFPro are behind his likeness and name being used on the game, claiming he never gave permission.
Who gave FIFA EA Sport permission to use my name and face? @FIFPro? I'm not aware to be a member of Fifpro and if I am I was put there without any real knowledge through some weird manouver.- Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) November 23, 2020
And for sure I never allowed @FIFAcom or Fifpro to make money using me
Somebody is making profit on my name and face without any agreement all these years.- Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) November 23, 2020
Time to investigate

The former Manchester United striker might want to look a little closer to home when it comes to pointing fingers though, as Milan have a partnership with EA.
In a statement in August the club said, "Today, Electronic Arts (EA) and AC Milan have announced a multi-year partnership which enables both brands to deliver innovative, world-class entertainment for their global audiences.
"For the first time in AC Milan's history, only in EA SPORTS:tm: FIFA will players have the opportunity to compete as the Rossoneri in the iconic San Siro Stadium. "
Zlatan certainly isn't the first player to find some issue with the game and every year some players come out publicly to question their ratings on the latest edition.
RB Leipzig's Nordi Mukiele recently went further in his criticism and called for EA to 'repair faults in the penalty area.'
One former teammate of Ibrahimovic who isn't going to be complaining about FIFA or EA is David Beckham.
Last week it was revealed that the Swede's colleague at PSG will be the cover star for the next gen version of FIFA 21 and will earn an incredible amount of money for the privilege.
