Carlo Ancelotti: Everton manager accused of tax fraud by Madrid prosecutors
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has been accused by prosecutors in Madrid of not paying 1m euros (£904,000) in taxes due for image rights revenue.
The charge relates to the Italian’s time as Real Madrid boss in 2014-15.
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”.
Ancelotti is yet to comment and BBC Sport has asked Everton for a response.
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.
