The Basque coach of Bayer Leverkusen has been clear about the reason why he was accused of defrauding the Treasury of almost two million euros between 2010 and 2012.

“Am I afraid of going to jail? It’s been ten years, when you have this threat on your back, it’s not easy. But finally justice prevailed. I’m very happy that it’s over because it was a stressful matter. Now I can” I can say: I feel like I won a football title.”
