Manchester United's Jose Mourinho has 'nothing to hide' over tax claims

Jose Mourinho has said he has "nothing to hide" following calls from government officials in England and Spain for the Manchester United manager's tax bill to be examined.

It has been reported by the Sunday Times that Mourinho's advisers have hidden more than £10 million but speaking after the Premier League draw with Everton on Sunday, the United coach said there has been no wrongdoing on his part.

"I have lodged the documents in Italy, Spain and England," he told reporters. "I have nothing to hide. They prove that I have done nothing wrong."

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo is also named as part of the allegations but management company Gestifute, which looks after the Real Madrid star and Mourinho, released a statement in their defence.

"Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho are fully compliant with their tax obligations with the Spanish and British tax authorities," the agency said.

"Neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Jose Mourinho have ever been involved in legal proceedings regarding the commission of a tax offence.

"Any insinuation or accusation made to Cristiano Ronaldo or Jose Mourinho over the commission of a tax offence will be reported to the legal authorities and prosecuted."
