Jose Mourinho avoids jail for Spanish tax fraud

File Jose Mourinho is one of the most successful coaches in modern European soccer winning league titles with Chelsea Inter Milan Real Madrid and Porto

Jose Mourinho has accepted a one-year prison sentence in Spain for tax fraud.

2018 was a awful year for Jose Mourinho. That will be added to a separate fine of €2m.

He was fined 60 percent of the money and handed a six-month prison sentence for each of the cases, but won't have to serve time in prison as his offense is suspended due to the sentence being under two years.

He was accused of having avoided paying millions in taxes due on his image rights between 2011 and 2014.

In March 2010, Mourinho was hired to manage Spanish team Real Madrid and moved to the Spanish capital.

Washington has threatened a secondary round of sanctions against European countries if they attempt to step-in and assist Iran. Missile needs a very short time for its preparedness and can fly at a low altitude, says Iranian defence minister.

Mourinho sold his image rights to a company based in the Virgin Islands, part of a corporate structure which was "used by the defendant in order to make fiscally opaque the benefits derived from its image rights", the Prosecutor's Office adds.

They argued that was created to obscure his financial gain from such deals - and he left it undeclared in his tax statements after he moved to Spain.

According to the agreement seen by AFP, Mourinho accepted a one-year jail sentence immediately commuted to a fine of 182,500 euros. But in the following two years, the coach "did not declare any income from his image rights".

It's been a rough week for Mourinho after the former United boss slipped over at the KHL game between SKA St Petersburg and Avangard Omsk.

Cristiano Ronaldo, now of Juventus, was also found guilty of tax fraud when at Real Madrid. The Portugal forward received a two-year suspended sentence and was ordered to pay almost 19 million euros (US$21.7 million) to Spanish authorities.
