José Mourinho has been given a one-year suspended prison sentence and agreed to pay €2.2m (£1.9m) in fines after admitting tax fraud while he was the manager of Real Madrid.

The 56-year-old is accused of committing tax fraud in 2011 and 2012 when he coached Spanish giants Real Madrid.

According to the agreement, Mourinho accepted a one-year jail sentence immediately agreed to pay a fine of 182,500 euros. Mourinho will also have to pay an additional penalty of 1.98 million euros ($2.3 million).

He was sacked by Manchester United in December 2018 because of the poor performances and he is the latest high-profile football figure to be judged over his tax affairs in Spain.

Spanish prosecutors accuse Ex-Manchester United coach, who had coached Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013, of failing to declare the income of 1.6 million euros in 2011 and 1.7 million euros in 2012.

The grounds for the case, as with a series of football stars based in Spain, is how income from Mourinho’s image rights was managed and declared.

Prosecutors believe that by handing over his image rights to a series of companies based in tax havens, Mourinho committed fraud by not declaring the income those companies have made from his image rights.
