Jose Mourinho accused of tax fraud during his time in Real Madrid

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been accused of tax fraud during his time as head coach of Real Madrid.

Prosecutors have circled on the Special One relating to his three year spell at the Bernabeu between 2010 and 2013.

He is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3million (£2.9m) in taxes.

The claim lists two counts of evasion – one in 2011 and again the following year.

The Portuguese tactician becomes the latest football personality to become embroiled in tax allegations in Spain.

Cristiano Ronaldo was recently put under the spotlight by authorities, leading to the Ballon d’Or holder wanting to quit Real Madrid.

Lionel Messi was given a 21-month jail sentence after being found guilty of tax evasion in 2016 while his Barcelona team-mate Javier Mascherano was also found guilty.

Mourinho is yet to comment on the allegations.
