The Manchester United manager made a brief appearance before a judge on Friday at the court in Pozuelo de Alarcon, Madrid, to answer questions on accusations of tax fraud.

The Portuguese manager owed Spanish tax authorities 3.3 million euros (2.92 million pounds).

He said he left the country in 2013 with the "information and the conviction" that he was up to date with his tax obligations, but two years later he was told that authorities were still looking into irregularities. They told me that to regularise my situation I had to pay X amount.

"I did not answer, I did not argue, I have paid and signed with the state that I am definitely in compliance and the case is closed".

In June Gestifute had issued a statement insisting that Mourinho had accepted the "regularisation proposals made by the Spanish tax authorities" relating to 2011 and 2012 and that he had reached an agreement with them relating to 2013. "That's why I was here for five minutes to tell the judge exactly what I am telling you now", he concluded.

While in charge of Chelsea, his Blues went 60 games unbeaten at Stamford Bridge; with Real Madrid, 43 at the Santiago Bernabeu; with Inter Milan, 38 at the San Siro.

Prosecutors said he had failed to declare revenues from his image rights in his Spanish income tax declarations from 2011 and 2012, "with the aim of obtaining illicit profits".

Not really. The Spanish authorities have been cracking down on allegations of tax fraud and a number of leading figures in football have been investigated. Messi was fined €2.1m and received a 21-month prison sentence previous year after he and his father were found guilty of defrauding the tax department to the tune of €4.1m.

Other players to come to the attention of the Spanish taxman include Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Ricardo Carvalho, Angel Di Maria, Javier Mascherano, Radamel Falcao and Fabio Coentrao.

Jose Mourinho hit out at Manchester United fans following last weekend's Premier League victory over Tottenham for what he perceived as a lack of support for the striker.
