Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness Sentenced to 3.5 Years in Prison: Daily Soccer Report

Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness was sentenced today to 3.5 years in prison for tax evasion.

According to Pro Soccer Talk, “After initially being charged with evading $4.9 million in taxes, Hoeness later admitted to avoiding an additional $20.9 million before the court ultimately determined the 62-year-old owed a grand total of $39,940,000. Hoeness’ defense was that he should not be punished because he came clean on his evasions. The court disagreed, finding that the former World Cup winning striker’s admissions failed to constitute a full disclosure.”

After the news was announced, MOTD host and NBC Sports pundit Gary Lineker commented on Twitter that “There’s an outside chance [Bayern Munich] could lose a game before his release.”
