Xabi Alonso is on trial for alleged tax fraud.

The former Liverpool midfielder faces a five-year prison sentence and a €4million (£3.6million) fine if he is found guilty.



Ronaldo agreed to pay a £16.5million fine in return for a 23-month suspended prison sentence.



The 34-year-old had been accused of committing £12.9million of tax fraud between 2011 and 2014.

Alonso, who played for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in a trophy-laden career, has been charged with three counts of tax fraud, which he is accused of committing between 2010 and 2012.

Prosecutors claim Alonso evaded around £2million of tax from image rights.
