Alonso acquitted of tax fraud

MADRID: Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso has been acquitted of tax fraud, a Madrid court announced on Tuesday. The prosecutors had initially demanded for him to face five years in jail before halving their request. Alonso, a World Cup winner with Spain in 2010, was accused of using a company based on the Portuguese island of Madeira to avoid paying 2 million euros ($2.2 million) in taxes on his image rights to the Spanish authorities. Prosecutors said the fraud took place between 2010 and 2012 when he was playing for Real Madrid.
