Bayern Munich’s president Uli Hoeness has been sentenced to three years and six months in jail for tax evasion, a German court has ruled today.
Uli Hoeness admitted defrauding German tax authorities of millions of euros.
The former World Cup-winning German international footballer had kept the funds in a secret Swiss bank account.
Uli Hoeness’ lawyer had argued he should escape punishment because he gave himself up. But judges ruled his confession fell short of full disclosure.
