Uli Hoeness says he could not imagine walking away from Bayern as he prepares to return as president of the Bundesliga champions.
Hoeness was forced to step down from the role in 2014 when he served jail time for tax evasion but he remains a popular figure at the club and is set to be re-elected at Bayern’s AGM on Friday.
The Bayern legend told Kicker he enjoys the support of Bayern staff and his wife for taking on the top job once more.
“I asked my family for understanding that I would like to become president again.”
“My wife, Susi, noticed that I won’t be happy with full retirement at 64. I won’t execute the office 24/7 but will be well-organised.
“After the upcoming period of office I will be 67 and there is still a lot of time to think about the future.
“Many Bayern employees told me that they would be really happy to see me come back.”
