Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly accepted a one-year jail term for tax invasion in Spain according to reports from Mirror Sports.
The Portuguese will not serve jail term due to Spanish law which does not allow first time offenders to go to jail for sentence of two or less.
The former Real Madrid manager was at the Provincial Court on Tuesday according to Spanish outlet El Pais.
Mourinho was also handed a fine of £1.75million which he is expected to pay to Spanish authorities.
His offense is related to undeclared revenue regarding his image rights while in charge as manager at Real Madrid in 2011 and 2012.
The source further reported that “Mourinho had previously played down the case, insisting he had left Spain with the “information and conviction his tax situation was perfectly legal”.
In November 2017 Mourinho told reporters that:“I answered, I didn’t contest it, I paid and I signed an official agreement with the state under which everything was definitively closed.
“That’s why I’ve been here five minutes today to say to the judge exactly what I’m telling you.”
The 56-year-old is currently out of job, since he was sacked in Manchester United last December.
