MP demands investigation into Mourinho tax avoidance
MP Meg Hillier has called for an investigation into allegations of Jose Mourinho’s tax avoidance after documents were leaked.
Mourinho, along with Cristiano Ronaldo, had been accused of tax avoidance after documents were leaked, alleging that the pair moved large sums of money to the British Virgin Islands.
MP Meg Hillier said: “These revelations are extraordinary and warrant a close examination by the UK tax authorities”.
Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo both denied the claims via football agency ‘Gestifute’.
“Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho are fully compliant with their tax obligations with the Spanish and British tax authorities,” the agency said.
“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”.
