Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been accused of tax fraud by Spanish prosecutors investigating his time as Real Madrid’s head coach.

Mourinho is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m; in taxes between 2011 and 2012 while he was manager at the club.

The Spanish prosecutor said he did not declare income from the use of his image rights in order to get an “illicit benefit”.

Former Manchester United and current Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, has been summoned to testify on 31 July in a case in which he is accused of hiding income from tax authorities. He denies the allegations.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi was given a 21-month jail term also over tax evasion.
