Jose Mourinho is scheduled to face accusations of tax fraud in Spain on Friday.



The Spanish authorities opened a case against the 54-year-old in June for alleged tax evasion during his spell at Real Madrid boss.

It’s alleged he owes nearly £2.9million in undeclared revenue relating to image rights in 2011 and 2012.

– a claim that has been strenuously denied by his representatives.

The Manchester United manager is due in court in Spain on Friday, although it has not been confirmed if he will attend the hearing in person. However his press conference to preview Sunday’s game against Chelsea is scheduled for Thursday, rather than the usual Friday. In addition, the Press Association report that players have been told of an altered training schedule.
