International Tax Fraud XI

Over the past three years, numerous footballers have been called to appear in court for tax fraud, so today we decided to make a whole starting XI of players who have been accused of this crime. Can you guess who makes the team?

Last season, FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and Brazil's poster boy Neymar were two guilty parties, but both managed to get suspended sentences for their wrongdoings.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho are the latest to be investigated, while Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria was forced to pay a £1.76 million (R29 million) fine after admitting that he dodged the tax authorities during his time at Real Madrid.

These aren't the only players who have had to appear in court for these wrongdoings, though...

Check out our Tax Fraud XI in the gallery above!

Why do you think so many players, who earn massive sums of money as it is, seemingly choose to avoid paying taxes?
