This due to Laws in Spain usually not enforcing sentences of less than two years.

The Portuguese tactician was accused of owing Spanish tax authorities approximately €3.3 million (R50m) in unpaid tax.

In addition to the suspended sentence, he will pay a reported €2m (R30.5m) in fines.

The offences related to undeclared income around image rights while he was in charge of European champions Real Madrid between 2011 and 2012.
