Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has said he has nothing to hide over his tax affairs.

Last week, 12 European newspapers said it will publish what it described as “the largest leak in the history of sport” under the banner ‘Football Leaks’ over the next three weeks.

Part of that leak, is that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and Mourinho, allegedly avoided paying taxes, using structures set up by their agent, Jorge Mendes’ company, Gestifute.

Gestifute have issued a statement claiming the accusations are “unfounded” and insisted the duo are “fully compliant with their tax obligations”.

Mourinho has also denied any wrongdoing.

“I have lodged the documents in Italy, Spain and England,” Mourinho told reporters after Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Everton.

“I have nothing to hide. They prove that I have done nothing wrong.”
