Former Real Madrid and Manchester United Coach Jose Mourinho have appeared in court at Pozuelo de Alarcon, Madrid, to defend the charge against him on Tax fraud.

Spanish prosecutors accused Mourinho of duping the Agencies in charge of Tax in the country, the sum of £2.9m for unpaid tax bills between 2011 and 2012.

According to the Portuguese Coach; “I was informed that an investigation was opened and they told me that in order to regularize my situation, I had to pay a certain amount of money.
I did not complain (or) appeal and I paid and I signed an agreement and a compliance act with the state, saying that everything was closed.
For this reason I was here only five minutes to say the same things I am telling you,” Mourinho added.

A source disclosed that after the allegations were announced in June, Agency GestiFute (Portuguese company providing agent services for footballers) released in a statement, claiming that Mourinho had pay his bills.

The statement states that he paid; “more than €26m (£23m) in taxes, with an average tax rate over 41%, and accepted the regularisation proposals made by the Spanish tax authorities in 2015 regarding the years of 2011 and 2012 and entered into a settlement regarding 2013.”

Mourinho was the Manager of Real Madrid from 2011 to 2013, where he led the team to win; Copa del Rey – 2010/2011; La liga – 2011/2012 and Supercopa de Espana – 2012.
