Spanish prosecutors have accused Manchester United football club Boss Jose Mourinho of tax fraud during his time as Real Madrid’s head coach.
The BBC says the Portuguese is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m; $3.6m) in taxes between 2011 and 2012. A Spanish prosecutor is also quoted stating that He (Morinho) did not declare income from the use of his image rights in order to get an “illicit benefit”. The two-time UEFA Champions League winner is yet to comment on the claim.
The accusations against Mourinho have come up at a time when other great football names too have been investigated on grounds of fraud, including Neymar, Javier Mascherano, Lionel Messi and Ronaldo who has threatened to leave Spain.
It is also in the wake of tax fraud allegations that Real Madrid forward (Ronaldo) who has the same agent as Mourinho, (Jorge Mendes) has threatened to leave Spain.
