Spanish state prosecutor accuses Jose Mourinho of tax fraud


Portuguese-born Mourinho is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m; $3.6m) in taxes between 2011 and 2012.

Jose Mourinho has been accused of tax fraud by Spanish prosecutors.

A Madrid prosecutor said in a statement that it had presented a claim to a local court.

That would be an additional burden on Puerto Ricans who are already struggling to pay enough in taxes to cover the island's debts. That's largely because supporters of keeping Puerto Rico a commonwealth and those who back independence boycotted the vote.


The case against Mourinho comes just a week after prosecutors accused Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo of evading €14.7 million ($16.5 million) in taxes.

The state prosecutor based the accusations on information provided by Spain's Tax Office, which indicate that Mourinho used shell companies in the Virgin Islands and Ireland to "hide profits made from image rights".

Ronaldo, 32, has denied the charges and is threatening to leave Spain after running into problems with tax authorities.
