Jose Mourinho admits tax fraud in Spain

Former Manchester United and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has admitted to committing tax fraud in Spain.

The Portuguese was accused of owing €3.3m to Spanish tax authorities from his time managing Real Madrid in 2011-2012.

Mourinho, 56, has agreed to a one-year prison sentence being exchanged for a fine of €182,500 (£160,160). That will be added to a separate fine of €2m.

Prosecutors said he had created offshore companies to manage his image rights and hide the earnings from tax officials.
