Hoeness was convicted in March 2014 for a €28.5m tax fraud.

Hoeness was initially charged with evading €3.5m euros in taxes.
However, when the trial began he stunned the court by admitting he had actually evaded five times that amount or €18.5m.
That figure was subsequently raised further to €28.5m euros, a figure acknowledged by Hoeness’s defence team.
