Convicted Arsonist Back To Bayern?

Bayern Munich could allow convicted arsonist Breno to return to the club.

The troubled 24-year-old Brazilian defender has been in jail on a three-year sentence, after he was convicted of purposefully burning down his Munich apartment.

Breno was on the books of Bayern at the time, and the club had already grown impatient with his attitude when he set his apartment ablaze in a moment of madness.

But he is now in line for a form of early release from prison for good behaviour, and could be welcomed back to the Allianz Arena.

Michael Stumpf, head of the Munich prison where Breno is being detained, claims that the player could soon be allowed to leave on day release, which could enable him to play competitive football again.

And Stumpf says that the prison has been in talks with Bayern regarding a potential return for Breno.

"We are still in exploratory talks, discussing with the foreigners' registration office and the law enforcement attorneyship," Stumpf told newspaper Welt.

"We are in contact with the club [Bayern]. Once all talks have been concluded, then we will have to see if anything can come of it.

"Bayern could well be a future employer."

Only last week, Bayern claimed they were put off bidding for another young Brazilian, Neymar, because of “problems” they had endured with Breno. And so it remains to be seen if the Treble champions will give him another chance after his rehabilitation in prison.

Also, it is unclear if a current prisoner has ever played in an official league match in Europe, or if the conservative decision makers at Uefa will even allow it.

Should the arsonist Breno be allowed to play competitive football on day leave from prison?
