Jose Mourinho is scheduled to face accusations of tax fraud in Spain on Friday and his familiar routine has already changed ahead of Manchester United's trip to Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho has told a Spanish court that a tax bill from his time as Real Madrid boss has been paid.

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".

Leaving the tribunal in Pozuelo de Alarcon in the northwest of the Spanish capital in the company of his lawyers, Mourinho said: "It's simple".

The Portuguese manager further revealed that he had left Spain four years ago with the information and conviction that his tax situation was perfectly legal, but a couple of years later he was told to pay more cash following a tax probe. "I did not complain (or) appeal and I paid and I signed an agreement and a compliance act with the state, saying that everything was closed. That's why I was here for five minutes to tell the judge exactly what I am telling you now".

José Mourinho declared the case brought against him for alleged tax fraud to be closed after he accepted the arguments put forward by Spain's Inland Revenue and paid the fee demanded to settle charges brought against him, which he has always denied.

The investigation remains open, however, and it will be up to the judge to decide whether Mourinho will have to stand trial.

The agency also published copies of a certificate issued by Spanish tax authorities attesting that Mourinho was in compliance with all of his tax obligations. 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.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Ricardo Carvalho, Angel Di Maria, Javier Mascherano, Radamel Falcao and Fabio Coentrao are among other players investigated by Spanish tax authorities.
