Real Madrid Defender Pepe Posts His Personal Tax Return Online

Real Madrid Defender Pepe Posts His Personal Tax Return Online

Real Madrid and Portugal defender Pepe has taken the extraordinary step of posting his personal tax return online after allegations in the press about an alleged tax evasion scheme.

Pepe is without question one of the most reviled players by opposition clubs and he may be many things, but teh centre-back seems determined to prove he is no tax cheat.

Yesterday, Spanish newspaper El Mundo claimed that Pepe and Real Madrid team-mate Fabio Coentrao had sold their image rights for just one euro to Panamese firm Rodinn in an apparent attempt to avoid paying tax.

However, the allegations seem to have gotten under the 33-year-old’s skin and he took matters into his own hands on Instagram earlier today, posting what appears to be his official tax returns with some details redacted:

Pepe’s former manager Jose Mourinho has also been implicated in potential a similar tax avoidance scheme, and so too has Los Blancos superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Will they post their tax returns online next? Only time will tell.
