Mourinho facing tax fraud charges

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has appeared in a Spanish court to face tax fraud allegations.

The 54-year-old, who has been summoned to answer accusations of non-payment of approximately 3.3 million euros during his time in charge of Real Madrid, has denied any wrongdoing.

Manchester United, currently sitting second in the Premier League, were forced to alter their pre-match media duties ahead of their crucial game against rivals Chelsea on Sunday.

The allegations come after investigations into several top La Liga players including Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
