Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is the subject of a criminal investigation, according to Portuguese authorities.
Reports from Portugal say the ‘Selecao’ head coach will face criminal investigation, as he denies tax evasion.
Scolari said in a statement he has “always declared my earnings in all the countries I worked in”.
The allegations are believed to be connected to his time as coach of the Portugal national team, which spanned from 2003 to 2008.
The development comes just 28 days before the start of the 2014 Fifa World Cup.
