Jose Mourinho‘s representatives have released documents they claim show the Manchester United boss “was in compliance with all his tax obligations” after he was accused of by Spanish prosecutors of two counts of tax fraud worth nearly £3million.
A statement from the Attorney General’s Office confirmed to Press Association Sport that the Madrid Prosecutor’s Office had lodged the papers, relating to 2011 and 2012, with the municipal court.
The investigation was opened after the Spanish tax authorities informed the Public Prosecutor’s Office about perceived discrepancies in the data, with a Madrid judge now set to determine the next stage of the process.
However, Mourinho’s representatives Gestifute Media issued a statement on Tuesday evening saying their client had “not received any notification” of the actions by the authorities in Spain, as well as circulating a copy of an official tax document dated July 3, 2015 which covered the periods in question.
