PSG had been set to pay just €300,000 for him before talks collapsed.ADVERTISEMENT Advertisement Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterTuesday 25 Jun 2019 12:23 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link201Shareslast_img read more

Tax Fraud: Mourinho Pays Fine to Avoid Jail Term in…

first_imgEx-Manchester United boss José Mourinho has agreed a prison term in Spain for tax fraud but will not go to jail.A one-year prison sentence will instead be exchanged for a fine of €182,500 (£160,160). That will be added to a separate fine of €2m.Spain rarely enforces sentences of less than two years for non-violent or first-time offenders. He was accused of owing €3.3m to Spanish tax authorities from his time managing Real Madrid in 2011-2012.Prosecutors said he had created offshore companies to manage his image rights and hide the earnings from tax officials.Image rights cover the use of a person’s likeness, voice, signature and mannerisms – and can be very lucrative for footballers and managers.Mr Mourinho’s move to Manchester United in 2016 was even delayed after it emerged his previous team Chelsea owned the trademark to his name.Spanish prosecutors said that Mr Mourinho, a Portuguese national, had set up multiple business entities in the British Virgin Islands and elsewhere to manage his image rights.They argued that was designed to obscure his financial gain from such deals – and he left it undeclared in his tax statements after he moved to Spain.He is the latest high-profile football personality to strike a deal with Spanish authorities, which are pursuing a crackdown on tax evasion or fraud by the country’s many resident star playersn January, Cristiano Ronaldo accepted a fine of €18.8m and a suspended 23-month jail sentence, in a case which was also centred around tax owed on image rights.He was playing for Real Madrid at the time of the offence between 2010 and 2014 – the same team Mr Mourinho was managing at the time of his own tax violation.Unlike the Ronaldo case, Spanish media were not told about Tuesday’s hearing, so there was no crowd to meet the former Manchester United manager, who lost his job in December.star, Xabi Alonso, is also facing charges over alleged tax fraud amounting to about €2m, though he denies any wrongdoing.Marcelo Vieira, who still plays for the club, accepted a four-month suspended jail sentence last September over his use of foreign firms to handle almost half a million euros in earnings.Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Neymar have also found themselves embroiled in legal battles with the Spanish tax authorities.As in many of the cases, Mr Mourinho’s deal which spared him from prison had been agreed in advance with tax officials.Mr Mourinho’s representatives have declined to comment.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

“Disgraceful”: Jose Mourinho launches attack at CAS for overturning Man City’s ban

first_img Source: Daily Mail When asked if City got lucky with the decision, Mourinho added: ‘Maybe they got unlucky. Maybe they don’t deserve to be punished by one single pound and they were punished in eight or nine million pounds. Maybe they were unlucky.’CAS released their verdict on Monday morning, and said: ‘Most of the alleged breaches reported by the Adjudicatory Chamber of the CFCB (UEFA’S Club Financial Control Body) were either not established or time-barred. f Jose Mourinho has launched a blistering attack on the outcome of the Manchester City court case, claiming Financial Fair Play is now dead and that football might as well throw open the ‘circus door’.The Tottenham boss hit out at the verdict delivered on Monday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to revoke a two-year ban from UEFA competitions but still fined City £9million for failing to cooperate.Mourinho was perplexed with why City were fined £9m if they were ‘not guilty’ before suggesting that if they were guilty, then their ban from UEFA’s European competitions should be upheld.“In any case it’s a disgraceful decision,” Mourinho said in his Tuesday press conference when asked about CAS’s verdict.“If Man City is not guilty of it, to be punished by some million is a disgrace, If you’re not guilty you’re not punished,” he continued.“In the other way, if you’re guilty you should be banned.“So it’s also a disgraceful decision, in any case, it’s a disaster,“If you’re not guilty, you don’t pay, I’m not saying Man City is guilty, I’m saying if you’re not guilty you don’t pay.”“You are not punished, even with a pound.“I know that money is quite easy for them but it’s just a principle.“Why are you paying eight or nine million pounds if you are not guilty?” he inquired.last_img read more
