(Football) Convicted Bayern chief awaits jail
(03-26 11:04)

Bayern Munich secured their 24th German league title. But the man who helped build them into a European powerhouse is waiting to go behind bars.
Uli Hoeness, 62, resigned as Bayern's president two weeks ago after being convicted of having cheated the state out of 28.5 million euros in unpaid taxes and was given a three-and-a-half year jail sentence by Munich's regional court.
Hoeness walked away from the European champions after more than 40 years service and is set to serve his sentence at Bavaria's Landsberg prison.
All five of Bayern's European titles in 1974, 1975, 1976, 2001 and 2013 came with him involved as either a player, general manager or club president.
Before his arrival as an 18-year-old in 1970, Bayern had won just two of their 24 German league titles.—AFP
