Former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho has accepted a one-year prison sentence for defrauding the Spanish state of €3.3million (£2.9m), a Spanish court filing showed on Tuesday, although the Portuguese will not serve any jail time.
The filing said the tax ministry and Mourinho’s defence team had agreed to exchange the 12-month prison sentence with a daily fine of €250 (£220) for 24 months, equivalent to €182,500 (£160,000), as under Spanish law jail terms under two years can be served under probation.
The court filing said Mourinho leased his image rights to companies based in the British Virgin Islands and Ireland in 2004 but left those earnings out of his tax returns from 2011 and 2012, when he was coach of Real Madrid and a fiscal resident in Spain, ‘with the aim of obtaining illicit profits’.
