XABI APPEARS IN COURT FOR TAX CASE

Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso appeared in a Madrid court on Wednesday, facing charges of tax fraud to the tune of two million euros, a court spokesman said. At the two-day hearing, the 37-year-old was quizzed over allegations he used a company based on the Portuguese island of Madeira to avoid paying taxes on his image rights to the Spanish authorities. If convicted, he risks up to five years behind bars for the alleged fraud which prosecutors say took place between 2010 and 2012 when he was playing for Real Madrid. They are also asking that Alonso and his accomplices pay a fine of 4.0 million euros and the outstanding tax to be paid with interest.
