Jose Mourinho in €3.3m (£2.9m; $3.6m) Fraud Allegation
Jun 21 2017 by Marjorie Miles
He is alleged to have defrauded the Spanish tax authorities in 2011 and 2012, for a total of around €3.3m (£2.91m).
Mourinho's side will then face Real Madrid at the home of the San Francisco 49ers National Football League team and Barcelona at the Washington Redskins' FedExField.
In three years with Real Madrid, Mourinho won La Liga in 2012 and the Spanish Cup in 2011.
They said Mourinho had already settled a previous claim relating to his Spanish taxes, which resulted in a penalty of €1.15m in 2014.
The Madrid prosecutor said the case was presented to a local court.
In addition, Gestifute said that in 2015 they signed the statements indicating that they were in compliance with Hacienda for the years 2011-12. The fact that the Portuguese boss repaired his relationship with Juan Mata after taking charge of Manchester United will definitely provide relief for Matic.
Mourinho accused of tax fraud during Real Madrid stint
The Portuguese worldwide is now in Russian Federation competing for the European champions in the Confederations Cup . Neymar, his father, and Javier Mascherano have also had their troubles with tax over the last couple of years.
Ronaldo, 32, has been playing for Real Madrid since 2009 while Mourinho, 54, was a coach for Real Madrid from 2010-13. The prosecutor said Ronaldo used shell company in the Virgin Islands to cheat on his taxes.
The Serbia worldwide was a regular fixture in the Chelsea team under Mourinho as the Portuguese coach led the Blues to a Premier League and League Cup double in the 2014-15 season.
Mourinho and Barcelona do have a fractious relationship, as the Portuguese believe that the Spanish club didn't treat him right while as an assistant to Louis Van Gaal and Bobby Robson.
In this way, Lionel Messi has been found guilty of fraud, and Cristiano Ronaldo accused by prosecutors of evading €14.7m. They have been given a jail term of 21 months, although it is highly unlikely that the Argentina captain will serve any time behind bars, according to to Spanish law.
