Not a good start: new Brazil coach Dunga threatens to sue São Paulo newspaper following allegations of tax evasion
The Folha de São Paulo has revealed that Brazil’s Receita Federal is demanding R$907,000 (£240,000) from the national team’s new head coach following allegations that the 50-year-old used foreign bank accounts to avoid paying tax in 2002.
According to the newspaper, “the captain of the team that won the 1994 World Cup had an appeal against the decision rejected by the CARF (Tax Appeals Board) in November.”
“The money demanded includes unpaid tax (R$325,000), two fines and interest.”
Dunga, however, has refuted the allegations and has said that he will sue the newspaper for breaking banking confidentiality laws.
