Entain CEO resigns days after Ladbrokes owner rejected MGM approach

Jan 11 (Reuters) - Ladbrokes-owner Entain Plc said on Monday its Chief Executive Officer Shay Segev would leave the company, days after the gambling firm rejected an $11 billion takeover approach from U.S. casino operator MGM Resorts International.

Segev, who will remain in his current role for six months or until a successor is in place, intends to leave to become co-CEO of DAZN, a privately-owned global sports streaming platform.
