Prosecutors in Spain have accused Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti of evading tax to the tune of €1m.
The offence pertains to tax due for image rights earned during the Italian’s time as Real Madrid boss in 2014-15 and the Madrid Community Prosecutor’s office claims the 61-year-old concealed revenues “intending to avoid his tax duties towards the public treasury with no justification.”
The Toffees played their first game since the Premier League’s restart against Liverpool on Sunday, drawing 0-0 at Goodison Park.
Ancelotti, a former Italy international, took charge of the Merseyside club in 2019 after a year at Serie A side Napoli.
Top stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and, most recently Diego Costa have also been sued for tax offences.
