Former Manchester City coach, Manuel Pellegrini 'receives huge fine worth over £343k for deliberately defaulting on tax between 2014 and 2017'

Manuel Pellegrini, a former manager of West Ham and Manchester City, was fined £343,000 for willfully avoiding paying taxes.

Between April 2014 and April 2017, a duration that covers his entire City tenure, the Chilean manager avoided £816,579.80 according to a Government report published on Monday, September 26.

According to inews, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) issued the fine, worth a total of £343,728.07, as part of their recent crackdown on tax avoidance within the sport.

In July, it was revealed that a record 329 professional footballers are under investigation for suspected tax avoidance – a number which has dramatically risen from 93 in the previous term.

As part of its operation, the body is said to have appointed a team of fraud experts to liaise with the FA’s Football Compliance Project.
