Regarding the tax fraud thing, isn’t it crazy how every famous footballer who supposedly commits this offense in Spain is…not Spanish? Messi, Neymar, Ronaldo, Mourinho, Alexis Sanchez, Falcao, Mascherano, Eto’o, Adriano, etc. It only just occurred to me, but I haven’t found any cases of Spanish guys getting dinged for this. Wait, there’s Xabi Alonso, but his was dropped.
Anyway, I call bulls__t on the Spanish authorities.
