A football trainer was paid "black" wages, or cash-in-hand, by the club Enskede IK while the then finance minister Bosse Ringholm was chairman, according to a secret contract proposal, reported Swedish Radio's Ekot programme.

The trainer allegedly received 50,000 kronor a year plus a bonus for every league point, but only 18,000 kronor was declared to the tax office, according to Ekot.

The radio programme said that Bosse Ringholm, who is now Deputy Prime Minister, refused to answer questions on the matter other than saying he knew nothing about such a contract.
