Mourinho pays to settle Spanish tax fraud case

JOSE MOURINHO has said a Spanish tax fraud case relating to his time in charge of Real Madrid is closed.

After a brief hearing, he told media upon leaving the court: "I was told that my tax situation was completely legal".

A source close to the case told ESPN FC that Mourinho alleges he has already paid his taxes and will not accept any of the new charges the court made on Friday.

The case is still on going.

Jose Mourinho has appeared before a Spanish judge to answer questions over tax fraud accusations.

The Portuguese denied the charges, saying he had paid €26m in taxes during the three years he lived in Spain as Madrid coach and had previously "entered into a settlement agreement regarding 2013".

Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Ricardo Carvalho, Angel Di Maria, Javier Mascherano, Radamel Falcao and Fabio Coentrao are among other players who have or are being investigated.

When asked if it was a "distraction" for himself or his team ahead of the crunch clash at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho said: "No".

Prosecutors said he had failed to declare revenues from his image rights in his Spanish income tax declarations from 2011 and 2012, "with the aim of obtaining illicit profits".

The investigation remains open, however, and it will be up to the judge to decide whether Mourinho will have to stand trial.

Mourinho signed a work contract with Real Madrid on March 31, 2010 and moved his residence to Madrid, thus acquiring a tax status as a fiscal resident in Spain.

The agency added that tax authorities issued a certificate which attested Mourinho was in compliance with all of his tax obligations.

The authorities allege that the two used tax havens in Belize and Uruguay to hide earnings from image rights.
