According to reports, The Spanish magistrate who is in charge of the case, Judge María Inmaculada Lova, blamed the current Real Madrid manager for keeping €400,000 in the dark which he earned from his image rights deal in 2014. This dates back to the same time as his first spell in La Liga at Santiago Bernabeu.

While talking about the case the magistrate said, “It concludes the investigation against the Real Madrid coach and maintains that he hid his image rights during his first spell at the head of the white team.”

The exact amount allegedly defrauded is said to be €386,361. This was reportedly the amount he received for the former Chelsea image rights which he didn’t declare before the Treasury.

The Italian manager too accepted all the facts that were provided against him in the case. He reportedly said that he was badly advised in this regard. Ancelotti said, “The trial to be held soon will close with an agreement in which the technician will accept a prison sentence that does not imply the payment of the defrauded quota and the corresponding sanction.”
