Jose Mourinho Accused Of Tax Evasion

Mourinho Accused Of Tax Evasion

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been accused of evading tax payments to the tune of £2.9 million during his time with Real Madrid.

Mourinho who coached Real Madrid for three seasons, joins Cristiano Ronaldo who was recently accused of tax fraud over his image rights in Spain to the tune of £13 million.

Although the Portuguese has denied any wrongdoing and is upset about the accusation, he is seeking a move away from Spain.

Spanish prosecutors are taking tax evasion cases seriously especially among footballers, Barcelona star Lionel Messi was recently given a 21 month jail term for tax fraud although he won't face any jail term.

In 2016 Mascherano was also accused and convicted of tax fraud and handed a year prison sentence.
