Berlin, Feb 29: Disgraced ex-Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness was released from prison on Monday after serving 21 months for tax evasion, a regional official said.
The 64-year-old served half of his three-and-a-half year sentence after being convicted in March 2014 of having evaded at least 28.5 million euros ($31.5 million) in taxes.
His release in the middle of the night was confirmed by Bavaria's justice ministry, which gave no further details.
Hoeness, the son of a German butcher, rose to fame as the driving force behind Bayern's rise and became a millionaire businessman, before his fall from grace.
He was granted day release in January 2015, and immediately started working in the club's youth academy.
"It's not over!" was Hoeness's battle cry to FC Bayern in May 2014, shortly before starting his sentence.    ?AFP
