Portuguese football coach Jose Mourinho has accepted a one-year jail sentence he won't have to serve and a fine of close to two million euros for tax fraud as part of a deal with prosecutors revealed on Feb. 5.

The 56-year-old is accused of committing tax fraud in 2011 and 2012 when he coached Spanish giants Real Madrid.
