Bayern Munich’s former president Uli Hoeness has asked for early release from prison and could be a free man in March if his plea is accepted.
Hoeness has been serving a 42-month prison term for tax evasion since mid-2014. He was convicted in March 2014 of avoiding taxes on at least 28.5 million euros ($31 million).
His lawyer Michael Nesselhauf says Hoeness could walk free in March next year.
Hoeness has been spending his sentence outside the prison, working in Bayern’s youth department since the start of the year.
A former Germany and Bayern star, Hoeness was a longtime club general manager and president before stepping down during the tax evasion affair.
