Mina Rayola once hung up on Simon Jordan during a phone call talk SPORTS.
A superagent who has died at the age of 54 yearsgot involved in a heated discussion with the first Crystal Palace owner in 2020. The couple spoke about Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s desire to file a lawsuit against EA Sports, which used his image in the FIFA game that year.
The Milan The striker insisted that more than once he gave the game developer permission to use his similarities in games. But Jordan asked Rayola why his client had not sought a lawsuit against EA Sports in previous parts of the series.
Jordan said: “I suspect it’s about money.”
Raiola replied: “It’s all about money. It’s all about important money, because it’s not EA Sports, it’s not a charity. For you, nothing depends on money, because you do everything for charity, because you’re the nicest guy in the world. “
Jordan came back with the words, “I tolerate listening to you as a charity, yes,” before TalkSport later said, “It’s about someone like you showing up and saying, ‘We’re missing an opportunity.’ And ultimately: “I can monetize and, of course, I will be paid a commission for it.”
Rayola added, “You know what’s nice? I don’t care what you think and what you think about it. That’s the thing. And what you think of me is absolutely irrelevant.

Jordan retorted, “Mina, I have no opinion of you. You are caring for me like a cloudy day. I’m asking you a question. “
And Rayola continues, “You don’t ask me questions. You claim I am doing something for a reason. I do it because it’s very simple, it’s the right of my players that can’t be touched.
“It’s over, Jim [White]because you need to give Simon your own program. Next time you invite me, invite for Jim, not for Simon. Have a nice day and have fun with Simon ”.
Ibrahimovic raised the issue on Twitter two years ago with a fiery tweet: “Who gave FIFA EA Sport permission to use my name and face? @FIFPro? »
“I don’t know that I am a member of FIFPro, and if I am a member of FIFPro, then I was put there without any knowledge through some strange maneuver. And probably I never allowed @FIFAcom or FIFPro to make money on me. Someone makes a profit in my name and face without consent all these years. Time to investigate. “
It is believed that representatives of Gareth Bale also considered this issue.
