Jose Mourinho fined for tax fraud in Spain, but avoids jail term

Gemma Collins would be proud of that fall

Former Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho on Tuesday accepted a one-year suspended prison sentence, to settle his tax fraud case.

It is understood that he won't spend any time in prison, as under Spanish law, first-time offenders do not normally serve jail time for sentences of two years or less.

The 56-year-old was accused of evading paying in the region of €3.3m in taxes on image rights while he was head coach of Real Madrid.

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

The Portuguese coach will also have to pay an additional penalty of 1.98 million euros (2.26 million USA dollars). These charges relate to undeclared revenue regarding image rights in 2011 and 2012, when Mourinho was manager of Real Madrid. He had already paid part of what he owed past year.

He said: "These games have got nothing to do with the World Cup". All credit to England , they were good today and we were off. We can't get too far ahead of ourselves.

The KHL had posted a series of pictures of Mourinho, sacked by United in mid-December as they sat 19 points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool at the time, taking in the surroundings and greeting players.

The Portuguese coach will also have to pay an additional penalty of 1.98 million euros ($2.3 million).

Mourinho is the latest high-profile personality to have reached a plea bargain deal with Spanish authorities. This evasion cost the Tax Agency €1.6 million in 2011 and nearly €1.7 million in 2012.

Messi was found guilty three years ago, along with his father, on three counts of defrauding tax authorities of 4.1 million euros (then $4.6 million) on income made from image rights.
