TAX CHEAT? Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho is the latest big name in football that has been accused of tax fraud in Spain between 2011 and 2012.

The Manchester United manager is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m) during the time he spent at Real Madrid, and Spanish prosecutors said on Tuesday they had filed a claim against him on two counts.

The tax fraud claims against Mourinho come a week after Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was also accused of evading €14.7m (£12.9m) in tax between 2011 and 2014.

Cristiano Ronaldo will have to testify in court over his own tax case on July 31.

Other big names in football have been accused of tax fraud in Spain recently including Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who was given a 21-month jail term.
