They told me that to regularise my situation I had to pay X amount.

But despite telling the assembled press "I didn't complain, I didn't argue, I paid, I signed the papers", a court spokesman confirmed to AFP that Mourinho remains under investigation and that he did not take questions from Spanish prosecutors in the court room, only his own lawyers.

Mourinho is part of a long list of players and coaches related to the Spanish football league who have been accused of dodging taxes, including Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo who is now fighting charges rated to suspected tax evasion of around $17 million. "That is why I am here, nothing else".

"I left Spain in 2013 with the information and the conviction that my tax situation was perfectly legal", Mourinho said after Friday's hearing.

Spanish prosecutors accuse Mourinho, who coached Madrid between 2010 and 2013, of failing to declare income of 1.6 million euros in 2011 and 1.7 million euros in 2012.

The court time appeared to affect Manchester United's preparations for their match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday but Jose Mourinho was quick to dismiss suggestions that it did.

The agency said that the tax authorities issued a certificate in which it attested that Mourinho was in compliance with all of his tax obligations. "It's just a change of normal training time because I want to be there and I can't be there in the morning so I have to change the timings". Accused of a €14.7m fraud, Ronaldo did not accept the investigator's understanding of his affairs and during a 90-minute hearing in July he told the judge he had done nothing wrong and was only being targeted due to his fame.

The authorities allege that the two used tax havens in Belize and Uruguay to hide earnings from image rights. Di Maria and Carvalho are reported to have settled their cases, while those of Falcao and Coentrao are still being contested.
