Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness arrives for the start of his trial for tax evasion at a regional court in Munich March 10, 2014. Hoeness, once one of Germany's most admired soccer managers, headed to court on Monday to face charges that he dodged taxes in a case that shocked the German public and spurred others to turn themselves in. Hoeness, 62, who as a player won the World Cup with West Germany in 1974 and has been credited with turning Bayern Munich into one of the world's most respected clubs, has said he told tax authorities about his Swiss bank account and undeclared income of his own accord in January 2013. While he has now paid back the taxes and fines he owed, it is unclear whether he informed the tax office about his offence early enough or comprehensively enough. If convicted, he faces a possible jail sentence. REUTERS/Matthias Schrader/Pool (GERMANY - Tags: SPORT SOCCER CRIME LAW BUSINESS) less
