Spanish state prosecutor accuses Jose Mourinho of tax fraud

Prosecutors claim that the Portuguese manager - who took over at Manchester United a year ago - failed to declare income of 1.6 million euros in 2011 and 1.7 million euros in 2012.

It will now be up to a judge to decide whether to take the matter to court. The prosecutor said Ronaldo used shell company in the Virgin Islands to cheat on his taxes.

They said Mourinho had already settled a previous claim relating to his Spanish taxes, which resulted in a penalty of 1.15 million euros in 2014.

And finally, they accuse him of "voluntarily" refusing to include 28.4 million euros in income linked to the sale of his image rights for the 2015 to 2020 period to a Spanish company.

In European competition, he has led Porto to UEFA Cup victory in 2003 and a Champions League triumph in 2004, and also won the Champions League with Inter Milan in 2010.

The claims against Mourinho come amid a lengthening list of tax fraud cases involving football stars in Spain.

Last year, Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and his father Jorge were found guilty of tax evasion on the Argentina international's image rights, with more than 4m euros (£3.52m) owed in back payments. The two were given 21-month jail sentences but neither is expected to serve prison time since it was a first offense and the sentence was under two years.
