Jose Mourinho accused of 3.3 million euro tax fraud
The Portuguese coach has been accused of two counts of fraud relating to his time in the Spanish capital as Real Madrid coach in 2011 and 2012.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was on Tuesday accused of evading 3.3 million euro ($3.7 million) in tax at Real Madrid, the public prosecutor's office in Madrid announced.
The 54-year-old Portuguese, who coached Real Madrid from 2010 to 2013, was accused of "two offences against the public treasury," the office said in a statement.
The total quantity is a sum of 3.304.670 euros relating to 1.611.537 euros for the fiscal year of 2011 and 1.693.133 euro for 2012.
The announcement comes a week after Real Madrid's Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of evading 14.7 million euros in tax through offshore companies.
Ronaldo, 32, has denied the charges and is threatening to leave Spain after running into problems with tax authorities.
