MADRID, Spain (AP):

A Spanish judge has summoned JosE Mourinho to answer questions regarding accusations of tax fraud.

The Manchester United manager, who is from Portugal but previously coached in Spain, has been called to appear before a judge in a Madrid-based court on November 3.

The 54-year-old Mourinho was accused by Spanish state prosecutors in June of defrauding Spain's Tax Office of €3.3 million ($3.7 million) in unpaid taxes in 2011 and 2012.

The money in question does not involve Mourinho's salary from when he coached Real Madrid, but rather revenues from image rights.

The United boss, valued at PS61m by the Sunday Times Rich List last in May, has previously denied the accusations made against him.

A statement issued by his agency Gestifute read: 'JosE Mourinho has not received any notification with regards to the news published today. To this date, neither the Spanish tax authorities, nor the public prosecutor have contacted JosE Mourinho or his advisers, who were hired for the inspection process.
