Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was on Tuesday accused of evading €3.3 million euro in tax at Real Madrid, the public prosecutor's office in Madrid announced.

The 54-year-old Portuguese, who coached Real Madrid from 2010 to 2013, was accused of "two offences against the public treasury," the office said in a statement.

The announcement comes a week after Real Madrid's Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of evading €14.7 million in tax through offshore companies.

Ronaldo, 32, has denied the charges and is threatening to leave Spain after running into problems with tax authorities
