The Bavarians' president was present at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night despite currently being on trial after admitting tax evasion charges

Uli Hoeness attempted to put his tax case to the back of his mind on Tuesday evening by attending Bayern Munich’s Champions League clash with Arsenal.

The Bayern CEO rushed to the Allianz Arena from day two of his trial at which he has admitted to having evaded €18.5 million in taxes.

Prosecutors had earlier accused him of evading a far smaller sum of 3.5m euros and are seeking a jail term.
Hoeness, 62, was pictured turning up at the stadium shortly before the last-16, second-leg tie which European champions Bayern lead 2-0 after the opener in London.

Bayern press chief Markus Horwick said Hoeness was “relaxed” ahead of the game, with his trial continuing on Wednesday and a verdict expected on Thursday.
