It’s no-pay, Jose!

MANCHESTER United manager Jose Mourinho faces further investigation by the Spanish tax authorities, despite insisting that his fiscal affairs are in order.

He attended a private hearing in Madrid last Friday, having been told that he failed to declare earnings worth 1.6m euros in 2011, and 1.7m in 2012.

The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager, who settled a previous charge in 2014 by paying £1m, protested his innocence as he left court.

“I didn’t reply; I didn’t argue; I paid; I signed the papers,” he said. “When I left Spain in 2013, I understood my situation was all in order. Two years, later they got back in touch with me. But I have paid and signed.”

However, a court spokesperson said that Mourinho remained under official investigation despite the hearing, adding that the Portuguese did not take questions from public prosecutors while in court.

He is accused of channelling money gained from image rights into a number of offshore companies, to avoid attracting Spain’s taxman.
