Jose Mourinho has pushed Manchester United’s Friday training session back to the afternoon to accommodate his morning court appearance in Madrid.The Spanish authorities opened a case against Mourinho in June for alleged tax evasion during his spell as Real Madrid manager.
It was alleged Mourinho owes the Spanish state nearly £2.9million in undeclared revenue related to image rights in 2011 and 2012 – a claim that has been strenuously denied by his representatives.Mourinho will appear in a Madrid court at 10am and is due to return to Manchester to oversee training ahead of Sunday’s Premier League match at Chelsea.”It’s just a change of normal training time,” Mourinho explained. “Because I want to be [at training] and I cannot be in the morning, so I had to change the timings, just that. It’s the only thing.”
