Jose Mourinho: Manchester United Boss Responds Tax Fraud Allegations
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has responded to allegations that he owes £2.9million in unpaid taxes.
Mourinho has released a statement, insisting that “neither the Spanish tax authorities nor the public prosecutor have contacted him or his advisers”. He then went on to dismiss the allegations and even disclosed how he paid his taxed during his time in Spain between 2010 and 2013.
The Portuguese boss is the latest to be fingered in Spanish tax investigations on the footballers in the La Liga, with reports that the 57-year-old evaded tax during his time as Real Madrid boss in 2013.
In a statement shared by BBC journalist, Dan Roan on social media, revealed that Jose Mourinho was “issued a certificate in which it attested that he had regularised his position and was in compliance with all his tax obligations”.
This comes after Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of defrauding Spanish Tax authorities of £13million and he is expected to be charged to court later next month (July), these allegations does not augur well with Ronaldo who has asked to leave the La Liga this summer.
Real Madrid has since then come out to back the Portuguese forward, denying the transfer report while they try to convince him about staying at the Santiago Bernabeu.
