Spanish Court Jails Mourinho For Tax Fraud

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been jailed one-year in Spain for tax fraud.

Mourinho joined the lists of top football personalities who have been charged by the Spanish authority for tax fraud with stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Neymar amongst others.

Reports stated that the former Real Madrid manager is unlikely to spend any time in prison, as Spain usually does not enforce sentences of less than two years.

The Portuguese national was accused of owing Spanish tax authorities nearly €3.3m (£2.9m).

In addition to the suspended sentence, he will pay about €2m in fines.

The offences related to undeclared income around image rights while he was managing Real Madrid in 2011-2012.
