Man Utd boss Mourinho accused of Spanish tax fraud

Man Utd boss Mourinho accused of Spanish tax fraud

"Jose Mourinho, who lived in Spain from June 2010 until May 2013, paid more than 26m euros in taxes with an average rate over 41 per cent and accepted the regularisation proposals made by the Spanish tax authorities in 2015 regarding the years 2011 and 2012 and entered into a settlement agreement regarding 2013", Mourinho's statement continued.

Prosecutors filed two claims against the Portuguese coach on Tuesday, reportedly on charges of fraud dating from when he was manager of Real Madrid.

According to media reports Ronaldo is unsettled at Real Madrid because he believes the European champions did not back him as fully as he had hoped in his dispute with the taxman.

The prosecutor said last Tuesday that there was evidence that Ronaldo used a shell company in the Virgin Islands to hide the money he had made from image rights.

Mourinho, 54, is accused of two counts of tax fraud - €1.6m in 2011 and €1.7m in 2012.

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss joined Manchester United in 2016 and won three trophies in his first season.

Jose Mourinho looks set to become the latest victim of that pesky Spanish taxman, following in the footsteps of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric.

A prosecutor says he did not declare income from the use of his image rights in order to get an "illicit benefit".

Spanish prosecutors have also indicted football player Predrag Mijatovic for tax fraud while allegedly working as an unlicensed football agent.

Barcelona and Brazilian star Naymar is also facing allegations of corruption and fraud over his transfer to the Spanish club in 2013 - a case which also involves his parents.
