Carlo Ancelotti accused of fraud and could go to prison. Set to face trials

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti could be in hot waters with the authorities, as he has been accused of defrauding Spanish authorities of €400,000 in unpaid taxes.

According to El Mundo, the 64-year-old allegedly committed the offence during his first spell as Real Madrid’s manager between 2013 and 2015.

Ancelotti has been accused of not fully declaring his earnings from his image rights in 2014, and will face prosecution by the authorities.

The Italian will now face trial in the coming month over the matter, and if found guilty, he could be sentenced to prison or forced to pay a hefty fine.

Cristiano Ronaldo had a similar issue in 2019, and was fined €18.8 million after being found guilty of tax fraud.
