Jose Mourinho accused of tax fraud from his time as Real Madrid manager

by Sam Peoples

Jose Mourinho has been accused of tax fraud from his time as Real Madrid coach between 2011 and 2012.

Just like the current accusations against Cristiano Ronaldo, Mourinho is accused by the Spanish tax authorities of not paying £2.9m in taxes.

The accusations made against Mourinho are very similar to those which Ronaldo currently faces in that Mourinho is said to have not declared image from the use of his image rights.

It’s getting a bit silly now how many involved in football in Spain are being accused of tax fraud isn’t it? Lionel Messi was of course found guilty and it really sounds like there might have been a chance of the law which has caught plenty of people out.

Will it have any repercussions for Mourinho? Absolutely not. He’ll carry on doing his job as Manchester United boss but just like Ronaldo he’ll want to clear his name and make sure these accusations don’t damage his credibility in the long run.
