Bayern paves way for Hoeness' November return as president

MUNICH (AP) After serving 21 months of a 3 1/2 year-prison sentence for tax evasion, Uli Hoeness is set to return to his previous position as president of German giant Bayern Munich.

Bayern's management advisory board unanimously proposed Hoeness on Saturday as the only candidate up for election by members at its annual general meeting on Nov. 25.

Current president Karl Hopfner is not seeking re-election, the Bundesliga champion said.
