Jose Mourinho accused of tax fraud in Spain

The Real Madrid superstar has been ordered to testify in court at 11:00 on Monday 31 July, as revealed by Spanish paper El Confidencial.

The former Real coach apparently committed tax fraud worth €3.3 million (R48 million) between 2011 and 2012, according to AS.

Prosecutors said he had failed to declare revenues from his image rights in his Spanish income tax declarations from 2011 and 2012, "with the aim of obtaining illicit profits".

Mourinho guided Real Madrid to the 2011-12 LaLiga title, returning to manage Chelsea after leaving the Bernabeu in June 2013 before taking over as Manchester United boss last summer.

"The Spanish government in turn, through the tax department, issued a certificate in which it attested that he regularised his position and was in compliance with all his tax obligations".

"Jose Mourinho has not received any notification with regards to the news published today".

Norway is in the single market, in return for accepting free immigration from the EU, EU courts and budget payments. She also said that the talks with May's party had covered corporation tax and same sex marriage.

The Provincial Prosecutor's Office of Madrid are looking into Mourinho's time at Real Madrid, where he was a manager for four years from 2010-2013.

"This investigation was initiated in the Public Prosecutor's Office after the State Agency of the Tax Administration informed the Prosecutor's Office of this information".

His is the latest name from football to be accused of tax fraud in Spain.

The accusation against Mourinho comes a week after the Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding Spain's tax office of 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million).

Mourinho denies any wrongdoing and released a statement and a letter detailing his affairs.
