Hoeness admits mistake in tax probe



Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has admitted to making a "serious mistake" amid a tax evasion investigation involving a Swiss bank account, according to a German report.

Hoeness, 61, who is also supervisory board chairman at Bayern, was quoted by Germany's weekly Sport Bild to appear Wednesday as saying he wanted "to come clean" in the affair.

"I have realised that I have made a serious mistake which I am trying to go some way at least to atone for with the amended (tax) return," he is quoted as saying.

Prosecutors are investigating Hoeness who filed a voluntary disclosure through his tax adviser in connection with an account in Switzerland.

Hoeness had been quoted Monday as saying he would not be commenting on the affair. He was due to attend Bayern's Champions League semifinal home leg against Barcelona in Munich later Tuesday.
