Former Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has begged the Spanish court ahead of his tax fraud trial case to allow him not enter the court through the main entrance.
Ronaldo who has been facing charges of not paying over £12m in tax on his image rights between 2011 and 2014, during his time with Real Madrid is expected to appear on court on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old Portuguese had earlier agreed to a deal in July to pay £16.9m to the Spanish authorities and also accepted a two-year prison sentence, that will not be spent behind bars
Mirror Sport reports that “Ronaldo asked for his request to be considered due to his stature and the subsequent risk of him making his way through the main entrance”
The initial request made by Ronaldo was rejected by the court but a written request has been sent to the Spanish capital the source disclosed.
Ronaldo will be playing for his clubside tonight in the Serie A before heading to Madrid on Tuesday for his court case.
