Despite only being released from prison in February, the 64-old Uli Hoeness, returns to his former role at Bayern.

At the club's  AGM on November, 25, he won a majority of the vote, announced DW.

The former president was the only candidate put forward to replace Karl Hopfner, who has held the role since Hoeness was imprisoned by the German state for tax evasion in March 2014.

The former Bayern and West Germany international ended up sitting just half of his sentence after being released in February 2016. He now makes his return to the club he had a large part in turning in to the modern, goliath of European soccer.

''I'm standing here today thanks to two families: mine and FC Bayern'', said in his pre-election speech Uli Hoeness.
