Jose Mourinho accepts one-year prison sentence for tax fraud in Spain

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.
