Luka Modric Charged With Perjury, Could Face Five Years In Prison

Luka Modric Charged With Perjury, Could Face Five Years In Prison
By Maurice Brosnan

Croatia football captain and Real Madrid star Luka Modric has been charged with perjury by Croatian authorities following suspected false statements at the tax fraud trial of Zdravko Mamic.

Mamic was a former executive director at Dinamo Zagreb, with the controversy surrounding Modric's move from that club to Tottenham Hotspur in 2008.

It is alleged that cash was embezzled via deals that saw Mamic, and three other associates including his brother take a cut from the sales of players. At his tax fraud trial, Modric is accused of making false statements.

It is reported that the deal cost Dinamo Zagreb more than €15m. Prosecutors claim Modric changed his testimony in favour of Mamic, so that he declared a deal actually agreed in 2008 was signed in 2004.
