Former Barcelona club president Jose Nunez has lost an appeal to a court verdict that sentenced him to two years and two months of prison after being found guilty of bribing tax inspectors.

The 83-year-old, who oversaw the building of La Masia, was found guilty with his son in 2011. The original sentence of six years was later reduced.

Nunez, who joined the Catalans in 1978, was there when Diego Maradona signed in 1982 and when the club won its first European Cup trophy ten years later.
