England boss on trial

Football News 24/7
Sheffield Wednesday's chairman Milan Mandaric will face trial for £180,000 tax evasion next year, alongside football boss Harry Redknapp, when they were both at Portsmouth.

Mandaric who bought Wednesday last December, is accused of two counts of underpaying the taxman between 2002 and 2007.

The first charge alleges that between April 1, 2002, and November 28, 2007, Mandaric paid 145,000 US dollars into a bank account held by Redknapp in Monaco, to avoid paying income tax and national insurance.

Redknapp has been seen as a possible replacement for Fabio Capello as boss of the England side.

The second charge for the same offence relates to a sum of 150,000 US dollars allegedly paid by Mandaric to the same account between May 1, 2004, and November 28, 2007.

Both Mandaric and Redknapp deny the charges and a two-week trial is due to begin on January 23 at Southwark Crown Court in London .
